On 24 March 2014, the European Commission published its legislative proposal for a new Organic Regulation. After 2 years of negotiations, the 3 EU institutions (Parliament, Commission and Council of the EU) are about to come to a consensus on the legislative text.

The policy day will bring together the EU policy makers and the organic sector to discuss the possible changes that the sector will have to be facing when the new organic regulation is adopted.
