Summary

Operators should have a policy on social justice. Violation of basic human rights and social injustice lead to non approval of the operation as organic. Forced labour and discrimination is prohibited. Child labour is accepted with clear constraints.(8)

Difference

EU Regulation 2092/91 does not address the matter.

Justification

As organic farming is a method respecting nature in its whole, human beings who also belong to the system should also be treated in a respectful way.
