For companies whose products are already listed in the Swiss, German, Austrian or Dutch input list, the contact persons remain the same as for the national input lists.
Companies whose products are not yet listed in the Swiss, German, Austrian or Dutch input list should contact FiBL Europe and report which European countries they are active in. FiBL Europe will assign the request to the correct contact person from its pool of experts.
For the time being, products must still be submitted separately for each national list. With regard to timelines, fee schedule, evaluation procedures and criteria as well as general business contracts, the conditions of the responsible evaluation team apply.
The basic admission criteria for the European Input List represent the consensus of the core partners involved in the project. The criteria for the different product categories are currently being elaborated. For the time being the admission criteria for cleaning, disinfection and hygiene have been published.
For products which are included in the European Input List, the following claim may be used on the product packaging and label, in PR materials and on websites:
‘Registered in the European Input List for organic production’ , or
‘Complies with the EU legislation on organic production’.
Other references to the listing are not permitted. In particular, the listing may not be called a certification or a recommendation for use.
The names and logos of FiBL Europe and its partners (FiBL Switzerland, FiBL Germany and InfoXgen), as well as the EU organic logo and the logos of private label organisations (Bioland, BioAustria, BioSuisse, Demeter, Naturland etc.) must not be used on the product packaging and label, in PR materials in PR materials or on websites.
