Frequently Asked Questions About the U.S. – EU Organic Equivalence Arrangement
The U.S. has an organic equivalence arrangement with the European Union: What does it mean?
1. As of June 1, 2012 products certified to the USDA National Organic Program (NOP) Rules by a USDA- Accredited Certifying Agent can be sold to the countries in the European Union (EU) without the need for a separate EU certification. And, products certified to the EU Organic Regulation by an EU- Accredited Certifying Agent can be sold in the U.S. without the need for a separate U.S. NOP certification.
2. The arrangement requires that certification agents issue import certificates for products being shipped to the EU and to the U.S. USDA and EU Accredited Certifying Agents will have the forms necessary to meet this requirement.
3. The arrangement excludes EU certified organic livestock products, including organic livestock ingredients used in products, if the animals received antibiotic treatments during their life. Organic livestock must be raised without antibiotic treatments in order to fall within the scope of this arrangement.
4. The arrangement excludes NOP certified organic crops if the crops are treated with antibiotics for instance, organic apples and pears that receive streptomycin for fire blight treatment.
