The production and placement of organic products with labels and logos on the EU market follows a strict certification process that must be complied with. Conventional farmers must first undergo a conversion period of a minimum of two years before they can begin producing agricultural goods that can be marketed as organic. If they wish to produce both conventional and organic produce, they must clearly separate these two operations throughout every stage of production. Both farmers and processors must at all times respect the relevant rules contained in the EU Regulation. They are subject to inspections by EU inspection bodies or authorities to ensure their compliance with organic legislation. After the two year period successful operators are granted organic certification and their goods can be labelled as organic.
