UK position on the new EU organic regulation – an update on negotiations

Nick will outline the background to the Commission’s proposal for a new regulation on organic production and labelling of organic products including the overarching rationale behind it and what it is seeking to achieve. He will summarise some of the key proposals, and what the industry views on them are, before setting out the overall UK position. He will then go on to outline how the negotiations have progressed in Council Working Parties and in particular draw out where things look like they might move in the right direction as well as the key sticking points. He will then outline the next steps in the process and identify areas where input from attendees would be helpful as negotiations continue.
