Bioagricert has recently published a new edition of the standard for the certification of gluten-free products.
The new standard incorporates all the regulatory updates and experiences in the sector and defines the requirements for third-party certification of "gluten-free" or "very low gluten" food products suitable or specifically formulated for people intolerant to gluten.
With this circular Bioagricert wishes to update operators on the modification of the NOP standard effective from 6 June 2022 concerning the introduction of animals on farms for milk production.
On April 28, 2021, Bioagricert reviewed the BAC Input Standard at point 15.1 Evaluation for the National Organic Program (NOP) to assess the compliance of certified inputs with the specific requirements of the NOP standard. Likewise, the IO_013 Material Review guideline has been modified with all the necessary requirements of the NOP.
