The Common Market Organisation (CMO) is a set of rules which regulates agricultural markets in the European Union. It builds on the rules for the common market in goods and services with specific policy tools that help improve the functioning of agricultural markets.
The CMO sets out the parameters for intervening on agricultural markets and providing sector-specific support (e.g. for fruits and vegetables, wine, olive oil sectors, school schemes).
It also includes rules on marketing of agricultural products (e.g. marketing standards, geographical indications, labelling) and the functioning of producer- and interbranch organisations.
Finally, it covers issues related to international trade (e.g. licenses, tariff quota management, inward and outward processing) and competition rules.
The CMO's legal basis is Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013.
