IOAS joins IFOAM-Organics International Group Certification Review

IOAS will be participating to help review, harmonize, and refine group certification requirements that will impact on the work of the CBs and ABs and the organic sector in general at the international group certification workshop organized by IFOAM-Organics International on May 21 and 22, 2019 in Bonn, Germany. The workshop aims to come to an updated consensus on group certification requirements, ensuring a more consistent and reliable level of implementation of the concept by various certifiers worldwide. This is particularly important as following the recent revision of the EU Organic Regulation, the EU commission is currently working on the control requirements for groups in the EU and third countries.
