2. What are the rules for organic goods produced and/or sold in NI?

NI will be able to send its organic goods to the EU as it does now. The EU has confirmed control bodies established in NI can continue to certify NI organic businesses. Organic goods produced in NI must continue to use the EU organic logo.

NI may send organic goods to GB and the goods will not require a certificate of inspection (CoI). Organic products moved from GB to NI will require an EU CoI except those moving under the retailer easements until 1 April 2021.

GB companies who wish to move organic products to NI for further processing or after 1 April 2021 must register on the EU’s Trade Control and Expert System New Technology (TRACES NT) for exporting and be approved by their control body.
