Certification and control over the production of organic and integrated agricultural products
Certification and control over the production of organic and integrated agricultural products are carried out by organisations for control and certification of agricultural products. The organisations are legal and natural entities appointed with the decision by the minister competent for agriculture, forestry and food. The tasks in the organisation are implemented by a controller for control and certification who has an authorisation to conduct individual actions in the administrative procedure. The control over the operation of organisations for control and certification is carried out by the Inspectorate for Agriculture, Forestry and Food.
There are currently three organisations appointed in Slovenia for the control over the production of organic agricultural products or foodstuffs and issuing of certificates:
Institute of Inspection and Certification in Agriculture and in Silviculture (KON-CERT), Institute for the Control and Certification of University of Maribor for technical testing and analysis, Bureau Veritas d.o.o.
