Are you an Australian Certified Organic exporter to the EU? Please be aware of the new TRACES system being implemented by the EU here.
New regulation requirements and instructions are available for download here.
A new EU template will now be required for all Organic Produce Certificates (OPCs) as well as Transaction Certificates (TC). ACO Exports emailed the new template to all existing EU exporters on Friday, 12 May.
Please note the TRACES system will be fully operational by October 2017, however, it has been brought to our attention that some EU countries are requesting the use of the new template now. If you experience any difficulties with the EU, please contact Exports immediately for assistance.
Please advise our Exports team at firstname.lastname@example.org should you require the template or additional information.
