EU Organic Regulation trilogue called off as 18 of 27 EU states say NO

June 1, 2017

The unexpected cancellation of the final trilogue was explained by the chair of the German organic umbrella organisation BÖLW Felix Prinz zu Löwenstein, who said:

“18 of the 27 EU states have shown the negotiations on the new Organic Regulation the red card. The states know that concluding a legislative procedure doesn’t mean in all cases it’s a success.”

He explained that in particular the rules regarding controls were criticised because they would produce a mass of data without making organics any safer.
