Taiwan unilaterally declared 22 countries including the United States, New Zealand, Australia, Chile, Canada, Switzerland and 16 member States of the European Union as organic equivalence countries. However, with the Organic Agriculture Promotion Act was officially implemented on May 30, 2019, only countries that have signed an organic equivalence agreement with Taiwan within one year after the implementation of the regulations can sell organic produces in our market; likewise, our domestic organic agricultural products that have passed the certification of our standard can be directly exported to the equivalence country for organic sales.
By the end of May 2020, Taiwan has completed bilateral organic equivalence agreements with Japan, the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. In the follow-up, the government will continue to negotiate bilateral organic equivalence with other countries to promote the growth of our organic industry.
Countries that have completed bilateral organic equivalence agreements:
