Our views on the Draft EU Proposal to amend the organic regulation
In August and September the SOPA membership were surveyed on their views of the draft changes to the EU Organic Regulation proposed by the EU Commission. The membership was asked to assess the IMPACT on their ORGANIC BUSINESS.
The survey results have now been published and can be downloaded in this document
These views have been adopted by the SOPA Board of Directors, the SOPA TAC and shared with various partners, including Defra, IFOAM EU and the Scottish Organic Forum.
The draft proposals are an area of concern for us, and whilst any changes are not proposed until 2017 this is an issue on which we will be representing our members.
