Organic inspection body

In Germany, state-approved bodies for farms producing organic food (in Austria, Bio-Kontrollstelle). The inspection bodies carry out an initial inspection and certification of a farm according to the criteria of the EU Organic Regulation. Thereafter, a notified annual inspection is carried out, but also unnotified spot checks. If the inspection is positive, the EU organic label and, if applicable, an association label may be used. As a rule, if a farm is a member of one of the many organic associations (e.g. Bioland, Biokreis, Biopark, DEMETER, ECOLAND, ECOVIN, Naturland), inspections are also carried out according to their usually even stricter standards.
