Schmid, Otto and Ziegler, Katia (2006) Seed and plant material, origin - Int. Codex Alimentarius Guidelines 2005. [Organic rules - Differences between other regulations/standards and EEC No 2092/91]
Find additional information in attached files:
Seeds and vegetative reproductive material should be from plants grown in accordance with the provisions of Section 4.1 of these guidelines for at least one generation or, in the case of perennial crops, two growing seasons.
Codex Alimentarius Guidelines rules the use of organic seeds comparable with the EU Regulation 2092/91 but allows when not untreated seeds are available treated seed with substances not listed in the Annex 2. In addition the EU Regulation requires member countries to have a data base on the availability of organic seed.
In many countries outside the EU it is not always possible to get untreated seed.
