In 2012 the EU and the USA sign the agreement on uniting efforts aimed at stimulation of organic production development, organic standards protection and simplification of organic product import/export procedure. According to the regulation, which came into effect on 1 June 2012, the EU and the USA recognize the EU regulations and NOP as equivalent standards. Thus, the products certified as organic in EU countries or the USA can be traded as organic in both regions without additional certification, however, with some exceptions.
