ASPECTS REGARDING THE STANDARDS AND REGULATIONS FOR THE ORGANIC PRODUCTION PUBLISHEDManuela Dora Orboi, Adrian Băneş, Iasmina Paunchici
The IFOAM standards are the framework for worldwide certification organisms and standard developing organisations. These organisations use them to develop their own certification standards, but they cannot certify themselves. The IFOAM basic standards (IBS) are developed by the IFOAM Standards Committee (SC), which cooperates with the IFOAM member organisations and other interested parties. The Codex Alimentarius Committee implements the Common Programme for Food Standards of FAO/WHO, whose aim is to protect consumers’ health and ensure a fair food trade.
