Service for European
Importers of Certified Organic Produce from South Pacific Countries
Link International Ltd. is supervising the whole process from the
farmers field to the importers door and ensures a smooth and
troublefree transaction. We mentor the grower as well as the
importer throughout the entire process and will proactively lead them
critical stages and point out pitfalls. We will procure all the
documentation necessary to verify the product as organic and forward
them to the competent authority of your country respectively federal
state. All documentation has to be complete and correct for
the concerned European certification agency to verify. If you wish we
can also conclude the export of the produce.
European organic market is regulated by the EU
No 834/2007 and the associated guidelines EU
(EC) No 889/2008.
every European company wishing to import organic produce made in a
third country (= non-EU country) must join this certification scheme
and apply for a
marketing authorisation prior to importation.
there are two alternative import procedures regulated in EU
Regulation (EC) No 508/2012.
Zealand has joined the "list of recognized third countriesÓ most
produce can now be imported on the basis of a certificate issued by the
exporter«s control body.
South Pacific Islands depend on recognized control bodies based
offshore. Dealing with others like, Tonga or Tuvalu you have to choose
the more complicated marketing authorization procedure.
