Derogations on young poultry and protein feed to continue

Derogations to allow non-organic pullets and 5% non-organic feed extended to 31 December 2017

The derogation from the EU Organic Regulatory Board to allow organic pig and poultry producers to include up to 5% non-organic feed within their rations was due to finish at the end of December 2014. From then on all producers would have been required to feed monogastric animals a 100% organic diet. This has now been extended to 31 December 2017

The derogation to allow non-organically reared pullets of not more than 18 weeks for egg production to be brought into organic livestock units has also been extended from 31 December 2014 to 31 December 2017

This is likely to be temporary, because the legislative proposal for a reviewed legislation on organic farming published in March 2014 and currently under negotiation foresees a removal of all exceptional rules in the future.
