Organic products – reciprocal recognition


The Agreement establishes reciprocal recognition of equivalence of the current EU and UK organic legislation and control systems for all categories of organic products.  Organic products complying with EU law and certified by control bodies recognised by the EU will be accepted on the UK market and vice-versa. The mutual recognition of equivalence will be reassessed by end 2023 in light of new EU rules for organic products which are due to apply from 1 January 2022.
