Controls and inspections

Farmers, processors and traders have to comply with strict EU environmental and animal welfare requirements to be able to use the EU organic logo.

An equally strict control system provides for checks to be carried out on these operators at every stage of the organic chain. Each operator (farmer, processor and trader) has to be checked at least once a year, or more often based on a risk assessment.
