Summary

The operator should ensure maintenance and sustainability of the ecosystem when harvesting or collecting the products.(2.4.)

Difference

Specific responsibilities of the operator are detailed in the IFOAM requirements, while EU Regulaation 2092/91 regulates this area in a more general way.

Justification

Since wild habitats are very vulnerable, IFOAM requirements indicate the most important criteria to be respected, including the operator, before approval may be granted.
