Bio-checker Skal

European organic and general labelling legislation impose requirements on visible characteristics that are, for example, on a label of an organic product or on the proof of transport of a load of organic products. How do you know whether you are using the correct mandatory features and whether the feature is also visually well presented?

The Skal Biocontrole bio-checker will guide you through these mandatory features. You immediately check and see which features are compulsory, with the corresponding substantiation.

Aims & Goals of EU Organic Food Law

"In view of the objectives of the Union’s organic production policy, the legal framework established for implementing that policy should aim at ensuring fair competition and the proper functioning of the internal market in organic products, at maintaining and justifying consumer confidence in products labelled as organic, and at providing conditions under which the policy can progress in line with production and market developments."
