Conformity checks of olive oil marketing standards

Published by AGRINFO on ; Revised

Summary

The European Commission has informed the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (WTO TBT) Committee that it is clarifying the procedures for notifying conformity checks on olive oils (G/TBT/N/EU/1067). This affects the checks for organoleptic defects in olive oil declared as “extra virgin olive oil”, and the procedures for verifying conformity checks. The WTO consultation is open until 3 August 2024. There is also an opportunity for all stakeholders to comment directly via the EU’s “Have your say” consultation until 28 June 2024.
