BAKGRUNN (fra kommisjonsforordningen, engelsk utgave)

(1) Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008 sets out the list of third countries whose systems of production and control measures for organic production of agricultural products are recognised as equivalent to those laid down in Regulation (EC) No 834/2007.

(2) According to information provided by India, the Indian competent authority has suspended its recognition of ‘Indian Society for Certification of Organic Products (ISCOP)’. Consequently, that control body should no longer be listed in Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008.

(3) Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008 includes product category F (vegetative propagating material and seeds for cultivation) for Japan. However, Japan does not have rules for the organic production of vegetative propagating material and seeds for cultivation. References to that product category should therefore be deleted in Japan’s entry in that Annex. That deletion will allow control bodies to be recognised for that product category for Japan for the purposes of Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008. Japan has been informed about these changes.

(4) According to the information provided by the Republic of Korea, the name of the control body ‘Konkuk University industrial cooperation corps’ has changed to ‘KAFCC’ and new internet addresses have been provided for ‘Woorinong Certification’ and ‘Neo environmentally-friendly Certification Center’. In addition, the recognition of the control body ‘Ecolivestock Association’ has been withdrawn. Finally, the Korean competent authority has recognised the following six control bodies which should be added to the list in Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008: ‘Korea Crops Research Institute (co.ltd)’, ‘Korea organic certification’, ‘Jayeondeul agri-food certification institute’, ‘Institute of Organic food Evaluation’, ‘EverGreen Nongouhwi’ and ‘ONNURI ORGANIC Co., Ltd. ’.

(5) According to the information provided by United States, the name of the control body ‘Primuslabs’ has changed to ‘Primus Auditing Operations’ and a new internet address has been provided for that control body. The names of two control bodies that had been added by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/25 had been misspelled. Those names should be corrected with effect from the date of entry into force of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/25.

(6) Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008 sets out the list of control authorities and control bodies competent to carry out controls and issue certificates in third countries for the purpose of equivalence.

(7) The Commission has received and examined a request from ‘BAȘAK Ekolojik Ürünler Kontrol ve Sertifikasyon Hizmetleri Tic. Ltd’ to amend its specifications. Based on the information received, the Commission has concluded that it is justified to extend the scope of its recognition to Kyrgyzstan for product categories A and D.

(8) The Commission has received and examined a request from ‘Beijing Continental Hengtong Certification Co., Ltd’ to be included in the list in Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008. Based on the information received, the Commission has concluded that it is justified to recognise that control body for China for product categories A and D.

(9) The Commission has received and examined a request from ‘Biocert International Pvt Ltd’ to amend its specifications. Based on the information received, the Commission has concluded that it is justified to extend the scope of its recognition for Georgia to product category A.

(10) ‘BioGro New Zealand Limited’ has notified the Commission of the change of its address.

(11) On the basis of the dossier submitted by ‘Bio.inspecta AG’ the scope of its recognition was extended to Tunisia for product categories A and D by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/39. However, since Tunisia is listed in Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008 for product categories A and D, Article 10(2)(b) of that Regulation precluded the Commission from including Bio.inspecta AG in Annex IV for that country for those product categories. In the interest of legal certainty, the necessary adjustments to Bio.inspecta AG’s entry in Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008 should be considered as an amendment, rather than a correction with retroactive effect from the date of entry into force of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/39.

(12) The Commission has received and examined a request from ‘CCPB SrL’ to amend its specifications. Based on the information received, the Commission has concluded that it is justified to extend the scope of its recognition to Tanzania and Mozambique for product categories C and D.

(13) The Commission has received and examined a request from ‘CERES Certification of Environmental Standards GmbH’ to amend its specifications. Based on the information received, the Commission has concluded that it is justified to extend the scope of its recognition to Cuba, Sudan and Kosovo for product categories A, B and D and to Algeria, Bangladesh, Burundi, Congo (Brazzaville), Chad, Gambia, Guinea and Niger for product categories A and D and to extend the scope of its recognition for Belarus to product category B, for Ghana to product category D, for Kazakhstan to product categories B and F and for Moldova to product category F.

(14) The Commission has received and examined a request from ‘Ecocert SA’ to amend its specifications. Based on the information received, the Commission has concluded that it is justified to extend the scope of its recognition to Dominica for product category A and to extend the scope of its recognition for Japan to product category F.

(15) The Commission has received and examined a request from ‘Ecovivendi d.o.o. Belgrade’ to be included in the list in Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008. Based on the information received, the Commission has concluded that it is justified to recognise ‘Ecovivendi d.o.o. Belgrade’ for Serbia for product categories A and D.

(16) The Commission has received and examined a request from ‘Ekoagros’ to amend its specifications. Based on the information received, the Commission has concluded that it is justified to extend the scope of its recognition for Belarus to product categories D and F, for Kazakhstan to product categories B and D, for Russia to product category F and for Tajikistan to product categories B and F.

(17) The Commission has received and examined a request from ‘Japan Organic and Natural Foods Association’ to amend its specifications. Based on the information received, the Commission has concluded that it is justified to extend the scope of its recognition for Japan to product category C.

(18) The Commission has received and examined a request from ‘ORSER’ to amend its specifications. Based on the information received, the Commission has concluded that it is justified to extend the scope of its recognition for Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and Turkey to product categories B and E.

(19) ‘Servicio de Certificación CAAE S.L.U’ has notified the Commission of the change of its address.

(20) The Commission has received and examined a request from ‘SIA “Sertifikācijas un testēšanas centrs”’ to amend its specifications. Based on the information received, the Commission has concluded that it is justified to extend the scope of its recognition to Turkmenistan for product category A.
