1 Enhancing Organic Integrity Check Organic The Global Organic Integrity Platform a service offered by

2 The Global Organic Integrity Platform A real-time worldwide source of certification data. An information hub for increasing transparency and organic integrity along the supply chain. Check Organic complements organic certification schemes, as well as companies sourcing and quality assurance systems. a service offered by 2

3 ENHANCING GLOBAL INTEGRITY Check Organic is an internet-based data platform for publishing global certification information and related services. is a tool to verify certificates and certification data in real-time and along the supply chain. captures and provides accurate and reliable certification data from participating certification bodies. offers an extensive toolbox to verify and connect data according to the user s needs, such as certification status, certificates, products, volumes, operations, responsible certifier, etc. supports organic integrity checks by providing and linking real-time certification data. a service offered by 3

4 History I: pre-regulation (before 1991) Organic farmers associations defined standards and introduced verification systems implemented by: Farmer by farmer (social control by neighbours and village) Consultants Consumers buying off farm (social control) First external inspections targeting about 10% of operators complementing the above a service offered by 4

5 History II: regulatory definition (1991 to date) Regulations define standards and inspection/certification system (process certification) First phase: every operator involved in the product chain has to be inspected/certified; import conformity Second phase: definition of risk assessment, residue analyses, and other more detailed rules; import conformity and equivalence a service offered by 5

6 Future: regulatory definition Process inspection/certification will be complemented by product inspection/certification Increased mandatory risk assessment Increased mandatory residue analyses Import compliance and equivalence EU (under discussion): definition by food and inspection regulations with exemptions where necessary for organic Production and manufacturing standards with less/no exemptions and transitional rules a service offered by 6

7 No fraud as result of this tightening up? The organic surveillance and certification system is comprehensively regulated but is weak when it comes to preventing and detecting fraud. Lack of integrity tools is a permanent source for fraud Today s trading relies on paper or PDF certificates which are sent prior to a physical movement of a product or signing of a trading contract. There is no possibility for the buyer to verify whether or not the certificate is valid at this very moment. Has it been withdrawn recently? Is the product covered by the scope of the certificate? Has the quantity already been sold to another buyer? a service offered by 7
