Bio Suisse certification
A valid organic certification equivalent to the Swiss Ordinance on Organic Farming (for example, Council Regulation (EC) No. 834/2007 or NOP) is the basis for a certification according to Bio Suisse standards abroad. In general, a buyer/importer of the products in Switzerland must be named.
International Certification Bio Suisse AG (ICB), the subsidiary of Bio Suisse, carries out the certification. Detailed information is available under www.icbag.ch.
Control Union offers a Bio Suisse inspection and in most countries we can combine it with the regular organic inspection. Please contact us if you wish a Bio Suisse inspection in addition to the EU organic inspection.
