EU and Chile sign deal on organic trade

Agro Napló
The European Union and Chile have signed their agreement on trade in organic products reached last year.

The agreement means that the EU and Chile will mutually recognise the equivalence of their organic production rules and control systems, allowing all organic products produced and controlled according to EU rules to be directly placed on the Chilean market, and vice-versa. The organic logos currently used by the EU and Chile for their products will also be protected as part of the deal.

It also provides for a system of updates of the products covered by the respective organic rules, as well as agreeing on co-operation, exchange of information and a dispute settlement system for organic trade.

The EU-Chile agreement on trade in organic products is the first of a so-called 'new generation' agreements in trade in organic products. Until now the EU has opted for administrative arrangements on organic equivalence recognition or unilateral recognition of the equivalence of third countries' organic production rules and control systems.  The Chile deal is also the first bilateral recognition of organic rules with a Latin American country.
