Organic Products Bill (58 page(s), in English)
The New Zealand Government is proposing new legislation enabling the development of mandatory national standards for organic products.
The Organic Products Bill 2020 (the Bill), provides a framework for regulating organic products. The Bill would:
Require all organic businesses who make organic claims to be approved by meeting all the requirements in the relevant standards set forth in regulations;
Allow for the development of regulations and national organic standards detailing production and compliance requirements for certain products.
Allow for requirements to be set for third parties who will check organic businesses and take part in ongoing compliance.
