Canadian Food Inspection Agency peer review report on Switzerland's organic system – 2017
1. Background

The initial SCOEA between Canada and Switzerland, signed in 2012, had limited scope. Following a review of Switzerland's organic program, the Canadian government entered into an expanded arrangement for the trade of organic products with Switzerland in September, 2016.

As per the conditions of arrangement, following advanced notice from the CFIA, the Swiss FOAG agreed to accommodate the CFIA's request to conduct an evaluation (on-site peer review) to verify how Switzerland's accredited CBs carry out the requirements of the Swiss organic certification program.
