European Commission maintain organic production and labelling of organic products proposal

July 6, 2015

Although the six-month deadline for reaching an agreement on the proposed 2015 Work Programme regulation on organic production and labelling of organic products has not been met, the co-legislators have made significant progress and are working towards conclusion of an agreement on this issue.

The Council adopted a General Approach on 16 June following intensive preparatory work, and the European Parliament tabled a draft Report on 7 May. Trilogue discussions to find a compromise between the institutions are expected to start during the Luxembourg Presidency. The Commission has therefore decided to maintain its proposal and support the co-legislators in their work.
