The new TRACES System for Import of Organic Products into the European Union

The European Union requires Certificates of Inspection (COI, also called transaction certificates) for each import of organic products from third countries. Through Regulation (EC) 2016/1842, the European Commission established new rules for improving the traceability of organic products and reducing potential fraud. In the future, COIs will no longer be issued on paper, but electronically through the so called TRACES System. These will be called “e-COI”.
