This certificate can be considered as a scope of certification belonging to the Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development of the European Commission. For the sake of greater clarity and convenience, the general scope of "AGRO-ORGANIC CONTROL" is designated as type A (Production), type B (Processing) and type C (Trade), and it has divided it into three sub-areas where the same requirements and procedures apply.
SCOPE OF CERTIFICATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH REGULATION (EU) 848/2018
All entrepreneurs, Regulation (EU) 848/2018 specified in the rules and principles of organic production at the same time, products production, processing and distribution activities at each stage of existing national legislation and regulations to abide by.
