NAQS goods accompanying certificate for Korea

Since 01.02.2015, processed organic products (>95% organic content) that are certified according to Regulation (EC) 2018/848 and implementing regulations as amended are to be considered equivalent according to NAQS guidelines. This recognition exists for organic products that are produced or packaged within the EU. The last processing step must have taken place in the EU. 

Every organic export consignment to South Korea must be accompanied by a NAQS commodity accompanying certificate. As your responsible organic inspection body, we can issue this for each consignment, provided the provisions of the equivalence agreement are met.
