New guidelines for accreditation of certification bodies for Europe

January 24, 2014

On 28/29 November the Standing Committee on Organic Farming made up of EU Member States representatives were presented with the European Cooperation on Accreditation policy on accreditation of control bodies in the field of organic production. This document was developed by EA under the auspices of the European Commission and with input from other accreditation bodies involved as assessment bodies including the IOAS. The IOAS has adopted this document to implement its work under its European Recognition Programme and will apply from January 2014. The document can be accessed on the EA web site.
