EEC Council approved roadmap for forming common market for organic products

11/24/2020

Eurasian Economic Commission’s Council has approved the draft road map for forming a common market for organic agricultural products within the Eurasian Economic Union.

The road map measures are aimed at removing obstacles to mutual trade by harmonizing legal requirements of the EAEU countries relating to production, certification and marking of organic agricultural production and organic products, including with due regard for the requirements of potential import countries in the markets of the greatest export interest.

 

Artak Kamalyan, Member of the Board – EEC Minister in charge of Industry and Agriculture noted: "Our global goal is to harmonize legislation within the Union so that a certified organic farmer can sell it at a profit both in the territory of any of the EAEU countries and third markets".

 

The roadmap will be proposed for approval at a meeting of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council.

 

For reference

 

Organic farming is a form of farming that combines best practices in using natural resources, considering local natural and climatic conditions, preserving biodiversity and applying high manufacturing standards that meet the requirements of a growing number of consumers of organic products obtained using natural substances and natural processes.​
