The European Parliament adopted by 556 votes to 73, with 4 abstentions, a legislative resolution on the draft Council decision on the conclusion of the Agreement between the European Union and the Republic of Chile on trade in organic products.

Following the recommendation of its Committee on International Trade and the opinion of the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development, the European Parliament approved the conclusion of the Agreement.

The Agreement aims to promote trade in organic products by contributing to the development and expansion of the organic sector in the EU and Chile and to achieving a high level of compliance with the principles of organic production, control systems and integrity of biological products.

Under the terms of the Agreement, the Union and Chile will recognise as equivalent all EU organic production and their control systems with regard to organic products.
