Summary

When the organic operator starts its conversion period, he has 3 years to have his whole farm certified. No parallel production is allowed after this period.

Difference

The EU Regulation 2092/91 accepts parallel production and mixed farms under certain restrictions.

Justification

Parallel production is prohibited in order to avoid potential frauds and unintentional contaminations. However the gradual conversion of farm and productions within a three year conversion plan is allowed. The plan has to be accepted by the certification body.
