China National Organic Standard

The National Standards for the People's Republic of China: Organic Products-Requirements for Production, Processing, Labelling and Management System (GB/T19630-20191) is the standard regulating the production and trade of organic products intended for the Chinese market. It is applicable to both domestic and imported products. Control Union, in partnership with a fellow control body, can offer to its clients this certification service.

Within the Chinese market, organic products can be marketed as such only when they fulfill the requirements laid down in GB/T19630-2019. The standard has been initially published in 2005 by the Standardization Administration of the People’s Republic of China (SAC), and has later undergone some reviews. The latest version in effect was published on 30th August 2019. The standard consists of four different sections setting out, respectively, the rules for the production, processing, labeling and management system of organic products and certified facilities. The scope of the standard covers crops, mushrooms, wild plants, livestock and poultry, aquaculture products, textile products and their unprocessed products among others.

As Control Union, thanks to the partnership established with a Chinese control body registered at the Certification and Accreditation Administration of the People’s Republic of China (CNCA), we can offer to our clients worldwide support and certifications services in order to enter the Chinese organic market.
