EC Regulation

The EC Regulation on organic production (EU legislation on organic farming) has been in place since 1991 It protects Europe-wide terms, such as "ecological", "biological", "organic" or the identical terms, if these are used in the labeling of food. They may only be used if the food has been prepared according to the requirements of the EU legislation on organic farming.

The regulation covers plant and animal, unprocessed agricultural products and processed products, which consist predominantly of vegetable or animal raw materials and are intended for human consumption and animal feed from organic farming. Beyond the EU legislation on organic farming in Germany, there are also the Organic Farming Act, which implements the provisions of the EU legislation on organic farming nationally, the Organic Labeling Law and the Bio-indicator regulations. The last two measures protect the organic label.
