The Malta-EU Steering and Action Committee (MEUSAC), together with the Agriculture Directorate (AD) within the Ministry for Sustainable Development, the Environment and Climate Change (MSDEC), organised a consultation session on the Product Safety Act (CAP. 449) Organic Production and Labelling of Organic Products Regulations, 2015.
This consultation session focused on how the regulations are taking the necessary measures in order to control the organic production and labelling of agricultural products. This legal notice also seeks to empower the different Authorities involved in Organic Farming Controls whilst also clarifying the relevant responsibilities of such Authorities. It also provides for the setting up of a Farm Advisory Board which is to include different stakeholders, with the aim to provide advice to the Competent Authority.
The consultation session was held on Wednesday, March 25, 2015 at the Naxxar Local Council.
