Inspections update
28 September

We know that both additional and unannounced inspections can be a burden on you when you are busy so we wanted to remind you of some figures and how inspections are selected.

Additional Inspections

• We will have to carry out additional inspections or visits on 10% of operators.
• Some of the visits may be very detailed, others may only focus on checking that non-compliances raised at the previous inspection have been put in place.
• They will be selected on a risk basis. For example, those with a high number of non-compliances or non-compliances that affect organic integrity; non-dedicated production; complex non-dedicated production/equipment; parallel production on farm; new enterprises that present a greater risk.
• More applicants will receive an additional visit in their first year.

Unannounced inspections

• At least 10% of all inspections must be unannounced; this means that some annual inspections as well as some additional visits will be unannounced.
• For unannounced inspections you will have a maximum of 24 hours’ notice.
• Unannounced annual inspection will be selected at random.

Another area of the EU regulation where we are seeing increased focus is in observing organic processing during the inspection. Some processing plants have organic products in close proximity to non-organic products and there could be a risk of cross contamination. Direct observation of processes like selection of products ready for manufacture or mixing of ingredients will provide objective evidence and support the records reviewed that the integrity of the product’s organic status is being maintained. When your inspector telephones to agree your inspection date they will ask you to try and identify a day when you are processing organic products.
