Annual meeting of IFOAM Organics Europe’s Interest Group on Certification and Integrity – 15 December 2021, online

On 15 December, 30 members of IFOAM Organics Europe’s Interest Group on Certification and Integrity (IGOC) met online for their second annual meeting.

The online general meeting was divided into two parts. In the first part, the IGOC steering committee (SC) provided detailed presentations of ongoing work on integrity of the organic supply chain and the future of certification.

The second part was based on IFOAM Organics Europe’s survey results on non-physical verification of compliance. In three parallel workshops, participants:

  • Exchanged about relevant digital tools for non-physical verification of compliance and their purposes;
  • Listed non-physical verification of compliance’s main challenges and proposed solutions – based on participants’ experiences;
  • Discussed the minimum requirements of verification of compliance to overcome current and future challenges.
