Obligations and controls
Organic labeling of imported products is verified in an inspection procedure conducted under the responsibility of the Administration of Agricultural Technical Services (ASTA).
Companies that wish to import organic products are subject to the inspection procedure and must ensure that this certificate accompanies the products that they import.
The Administration of Agricultural Technical Services is responsible for the control and certification of operators (producers, processors, distributors, importers) and of organic products in Luxembourg. It is in charge of verifying the proper use of the organic label on products placed on the market, originating from Luxembourg, European Union or third country.
The ASTA is responsible for the accreditation of private organic product control and certification agencies operating in the national territory.
