Since 1972, IFOAM has occupied an unchallenged position as the only international umbrella organization of the organic world, uniting an enormous diversity of stakeholders contributing to the organic vision. The IFOAM Standard is an internationally applicable organic standard born to create synergies and harmonization in the organic sector at global level.
Bioagricert has been accredited by IFOAM since 1996.
IFOAM allows two certification possibilities: IFOAM FOOD and IFOAM inputs.
Please note that the Manual describes also the procedure that operators should follow in case of complaints and appeals. In the case of appeals the operator should send a letter by registered email or registrared mail to the Appeals Committee within 15 days from the receipt of the non conformity. The Committee will manage the case within 30 days from the receipt of the appeal.
