Council Decision of 8 July 2019 establishing the position to be taken on behalf of the Union with regard to trade in organic products between the European Union and San Marino.
The Agreement on Cooperation and Customs Union between the European Economic Community and the Republic of San Marino aims to establish a customs union between the parties and to promote comprehensive cooperation between them in order to contribute to the social and economic development of San Marino and strengthen their relations. The Agreement entered into force on 1 April 2002.
The Cooperation Committee is to adopt a Decision on the applicable provisions of Union legislation on organic production and labelling of organic products, and arrangements for imports of organic products, in order to enhance legal certainty among the parties to the Agreement and to support the proper functioning of the customs union between the EU and San Marino.
The clarification will allow San Marino to apply the EU acquis correctly and to resume trade in organic products with the Union. It will also enable the EU to add San Marino to the electronic Trade Control and Expert System (‘TRACES’).
