IACB Standard equivalent to the EU Regulations

This standard provides access to the following markets:

Primarily the EU, as well as the United Kingdom, Norway, and other countries, including those without their own organic legislation. Most organic products in Ukraine are also certified according to this standard.

Information about the standard:

Certification according to EU Regulations in non-EU countries is currently carried out based on so-called equivalent standards, which include the requirements of the Regulations themselves. The IACB Equivalent EU Organic Production & Processing Standard for Third Countries is precisely such a standard, which has been approved by the European Commission since 2010.

This standard addresses the primary spheres of production and labeling, as well as control and circulation. Furthermore, it outlines detailed requirements for organic production of various product categories (crop production, animal husbandry, aquaculture, food, wine, and feed production).

Certification according to this standard allows Operators to label their products with the use of the organic logo (better known as Euro-leaf) and export them as organic to EU countries and beyond.

Organic Standard is accredited by the International Organic Accreditation Service (IOAS) to conduct inspection and certification activities in accordance with this standard.
