Organic agricultura in Spain
Organic agricultura, can be simply defined as the summary farming techniques that normally exclude the use of synthetic fertilizers, insecticides, pesticides, antibiotics, etc., with the objective of preserving the environment, maintain or increase the fertility of the soil and offer food products with all its natural properties.
Organic agriculture has been legally regulated in Spain since 1989, once the Regulation of the Generic Name “Organic Agriculture” was approved, which was applied until the use of the 2092/91 Regulation (CEE) related to organic agricultural production and its indications in the agricultural and food products.
Presently, since the 1st of January 2009, the date that it was implemented, the Organic production is regulated by the Regulation (CE) 834/2007 the advice on production and labelling of organic products and the repeal of the Regulation (CEE) 2092/91 and the Regulations: R(CE) 889/2008 of the Commission, by which the orders of implementation are established of the R(CE) 834/2007 with respect to the organic production, its labelling and control and R(CE) 1235/2008 of the Commission by which the orders of implementation are established of the R(CE) 834/2007, in what is referred to the importation of organic products from third countries. (See section “Documents of interest/ Legislation”).
In Spain, the control and certification of the organic production farming is the competence of the Autonomous Communities and it is normally carried out by public control authorities, through territorial Boards or Committees of Organic Agriculture which are organisms which depend directly from the corresponding Ministries or Departments of Agriculture, or directly by the General Directorate assigned to them.
Nevertheless, the Autonomous Communities of Andalucia and Castilla La Mancha, have authorised private organisms to carry out these functions and, in the case of Aragon, the competent authorities have appointed a public control authority as well as private control organisms.
A trademark so that the consumer can recognise products coming from organic agriculture, all the packaged units, besides having their own brand and the mention of some of the specifications of organic agriculture, require to have printed the authorisation code and the control organism or the specific logo, with the name and the code of the control organism. Also, the community logo of the AE mentioned at the beginning of this page can also be stamped, which will be an obligation, in the new design, the 1st July 2010, under the conditions of the legislation.
All of this means that the farm or industry where the product has been grown or produced, is submitted to the corresponding controls and inspections of the Authority or the established Organism depending on the Autonomous Community. It also constitutes the only official guarantee that the product meets the quality expected by the consumer and that it complies to the legislation established in the Regulation (CE) 834/2007 and the provisions of application.
For more Information about the authorities and organic production control organisms in each Autonomous Community, refer to the section “Documents of interest/general information of interest related to organic agriculture”.

All of this, without forgetting the tradition and the development obtained in organic agriculture.
