European Union Council Regulation (EC) No 834-2007 covering the production and labelling of organic products is now in full effect. We attach the complete text below. Readers should also understand that the new rules cover imported organic products which must conform with the new Regulation as well.

We note that in "EU English" the spelling "labelling" is used rather than the American "labeling".

We also include Council Regulation (EC) 710-2009 covering the details of Organic Aquaculture.
