Priority question for written answer P-005597/2020
to the Commission
Rule 138
Marlene Mortler (PPE)
 Subject: Impact of the Eco Regulation (EU) 2018/848 on organic farmers in developing countries

The new Eco-Regulation (EU) 2018/848 is expected to change the way actors produce organic products both in the EU and in third countries.

The EU market is essential for farmers in developing countries who are committed to organic farming. Many of them are in a precarious situation, which is exacerbated by the current health, economic and social crisis.

The changes to the Regulation are expected to have a significant impact on farmers outside the EU, in particular with regard to the rules on imports and compliance.

Harmonisation of the implementation of organic legislation in non-EU countries is seen as a step forward only if it does not become an obstacle to local organic production and exports from developing countries.

1. Has the Commission carried out an impact assessment of the new Regulation in relation to current organic producers in developing countries?

2. How can the EU ensure that adaptation measures are in place for developing countries with different administrative, climatic or natural conditions?
