How have EU rules on organic production and labelling been applied?

The European Commission (EC) has published this month a new report on the way EU rules on organic production and labelling have been applied. As required under the Regulation 834/2007, that specifies in its Article 41 that particular issues should be reviewed, the EC takes stock of the experience gained by the application of the legislation from 1st January 2009, when it started to apply.
Based on the limited experience since 2009, the reports concluds that it is too early to table proposals to adjust the Regulation, , but states that this will stimulate a constructive debate on the organic farming regulation – with the European Parliament, the Council, and other stakeholders – on the basis of which the Commission may come forward with proposals at a later stage.
On a particular note, the report suggests that a wide range of topics could be considered, such as the simplification of the legislative framework, co-existence rules between organic and GMO production, improving the system of controls, improving the equivalence regime in trade of organic products.
