As a control authority, Skal Biocontrole is dedicated to proving the reliability of organic products in the Netherlands. We are the only organic control organisation in the Netherlands, assigned by the Ministry of Economic Affairs.
Skal Biocontrole is the designated Control Authority responsible for the inspection and certification of organic companies in the Netherlands, within the context of Regulations: (EC) Nr. 834/2007, (EC) Nr. 889/2008 and (EC) Nr. 1235/2008. The control system set up is indicated as system B: System of a designated public control authority. Organic is a legally protected term. A product may only be called organic if the production process complies with legal regulations. The European government determines the rules, the over 3600 certified Dutch organic entrepreneurs comply with these and we monitor compliance. This way, the consumer can be sure that an organic product really is organic. We monitor the entire Dutch organic chain on behalf of the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs. By issuing the European organic production logo, we make the reliability of organic products visible for buyer and consumer. This is how Skal contributes to the proven reliability of the organic sector.
