Complete standard

Codex Alimentarius Guidelines for the Production, Processing, Marketing and Labelling of Organically Produced Food, 2004 The Codex Committee on Food Labelling developed the Guidelines for the Production, Processing, Labelling and Marketing of Organically Produced Foods in view of the growing production and international trade in organically produced foods with a view to facilitating trade and preventing misleading claims. The Guidelines are intended to facilitate the harmonization of requirements for organic products at the international level, and may also provide assistance to governments wishing to establish national regulations in this area. The Guidelines include general sections describing the organic production concept and the scope of the text; description and definitions; labelling and claims (including products in transition/conversion); rules of production and preparation, including criteria for the substances allowed in organic production; inspection and certification systems; and import control. These Guidelines were first adopted in 1999, updated in 2001 with the livestock section and revised in 2004. Further information on labelling texts, or any other aspect of the Codex Alimentarius Commission, may be obtained from: The Secretary, Codex Alimentarius Commission, Joint FAO/WHO Food Standards Programme, FAO, Viale delle Terme di Caracalla, 00100, Rome Italy fax: +39(06)57.05.45.93 email: codex@fao.org Internet address: http://www.codexalimentarius.net /style/images/fileicons/application_pdf.png /style/images/fileicons/application_pdf.png
