European Commission and Chile Conclude Trade Agreement on Organic Products

The European Union and Chile have concluded negotiations on an agreement on trade in organic products. Through this agreement, the EU and Chile will mutually recognise the equivalence of their organic production rules and control system and ensure a high level of respect of the principle of organic production.

European Commissioner for agriculture, Phil Hogan says: “The European organic sector continues to be one of our most dynamic production sectors and Chile has great potential in developing opportunities for organic farmers and businesses. This agreement will contribute to creating jobs and growth for both partners, with the guarantee for the consumer of solid control systems.”

The agreement is broad in scope, including all EU organic products, and will allow for products produced and controlled according to EU rules to be directly placed on the Chilean market and vice versa. It will also aim at reciprocally protecting the organic logos as well as providing for a system of updates of the product’s coverage, along with increased co-operation, information exchange and dispute settlement in organic trade.
