A well-functioning certification system is necessary for a well-functioning organic market. Therefore, the goal of the organic certification system is to gain consumer trust in the organic integrity of the product s/he buys.

The now completed CERTCOST project provides six key recommendations (External PDF 1.5MB) on how to improve the certification system, targeting organic operators, control bodies, competent authorities in Member States and other stakeholders.

A separate synthesis report (External PDF 1.1MB) summarises the main results of the CERTCOST project and briefly describes the research process involved.

ORC has been a partner in the project since 2009 results from our engagement can be found here.
