US-EU Organic Equivalency Arrangement

Flavex organic products which are certified according to regulation (EC) No. 834/2007 can be marketed in the United States as ´organic´ if a NOP Import Certificate has been issued. Upon request we will send you in advance for all organic products to be ordered the NOP-import certificate which will be issued by our organic certifier.

On February 14, 2012 the United States and the European Commission has reached an arrangement for mutual recognition of organic standards. This enables companies which are organic certified in the EU according to regulation (EC) No. 834/2007 to market their products in the United States. Conversely, US companies which are certified according to Final Rule 7 CFR Part 205 – National Organic Program (NOP) are allowed to market their products in EU member states without the necessity of a new certification in accordance with the valid standard in the target country.
