On-site inspection

We conduct the on-site inspection using an integrated and structured checklist. We send the documents which have to be completed to our clients prior to the inspection. During the inspection our inspector puts together an inspection report, in which their observations and the measures which have to be done by the client following the inspection, are recorded, along with the deadlines of these. In the end of the inspection our inspector shares the content of the inspection report, then both parties sign it. Following this the inspection report and all belonging documents are forwarded to the certifier. Therefore the inspection and the certification processes are never conducted by the same person. 

Certification procedure

The certification body checks all the information collected by the inspector during the inspection process. If the farm/processing plant and the products comply with the regulations, the certificate is issued and the certification process is concluded.  


Organic farming

Organic farming is the farming, food production system, which either prohibits or restricts the application of soil enhancing products, fertilizers, certain plant protection products, and veterinary medicine products. Organic farming gives priority to sustainability, biodiversity and to the protection of the environment. The economic operator applies the rules prescribed in the EU organic regulation within a strict control framework.

In order for someone to deal officially with organic farming, it is necessary to register with one of the certification bodies. From the day of the registration it is mandatory to comply with the EU organic regulation, which is defined by the EU and integrated. The participant of organic farming is obliged to correspond with requirements, and to verify this with documents throughout the year, which is reviewed by the organic certification body. 

An organization operating outside of the certification system is not permitted to sell their products with marking referring to organic farming, not even in case the activity of their farm is similar or possibly identical with regulated organic farming. 

One of the most important requirements is that in organic farming the use of genetically modified animals, plant materials and substances is not permitted. Apart from a few exemptions the application of chemically produced sintetic plant protection products, easily soluble phosphorus fertilizers and sintetic nitrogen fertilizers is prohibited.
