Organic regulation briefing

On Thursday 19 April, the European Parliament will vote on the outcome of the trilogue negotiations on a new organic regulation.

Greens/EFA MEP Martin Häusling was the parliament’s rapporteur, steering negotiations for nearly four years until the final agreement on 20 November 2017.

The new regulation will result in clear rules, giving consumers a better idea of what lies behind the organic label. It will also bring the regulation up to date to support the continued development of the organic sector.

We've produced a briefing summarising the main achievements of the new regulation.
