Update to Soil Association Standards for Great Britain
The Soil Association Standards for Great Britain and Organic Standards for Great Britain have been updated to version 1.1 as part of the planned updates schedule for 2022.
The main changes are as follows:
Additional guidance for labelling standards
Where certified licensees use the word organic (including in brand names) and/or the Soil Association Organic symbol in their marketing materials and websites, we have added some additional guidance to two of our labelling standards, “Using the term organic” and “Using the Soil Association symbol off-product”. The additional guidance provides clarity for certified companies, and consumers and buyers, to ensure it is clear whether a product is organic and meets the SA standards.
Soil Association inspectors and certification staff will be applying this additional guidance as from 1st November 2022, if you have any queries about whether your use of organic or the SA symbol meets these standards please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
