With the publication in the Official Journal of the European Union on March 31, 2010, the new Organic European logo was officially adopted with Regulation (EC) No 271/2010 of the Commission on March 24, 2010, amending Regulation (EC) No 889/2008, laying down detailed rules for the implementation of Council Regulation (EC) No 834/2007, as regards the organic production logo of the European Union. The logo, which is a registered collective trade mark, and its user manual can be downloaded in all graphical formats.
The new organic logo is the second certifying symbol for organic products in the EU. The first one was launched at the end of the 1990s and was applied on a voluntary basis. It is obsolete from 1 July 2010 although it may still appear on some products as they clear through the supply chain.
From July 2010, the EU organic logo is obligatory for all organic pre-packaged food products within the European Union. It is also possible to use the logo on a voluntary basis for non pre-packaged organic goods produced within the EU or any organic products imported from third countries.
