Canadian Food Inspection Agency peer review report on Switzerland's organic system – 2017
10. Overall conclusions
All representatives involved in the assessment – from the staff at the FOAG, the SAS, the CAs and the CBs, to the operators were helpful, responsive, and accommodating to the assessment team during the on-site assessment.
Overall, the CFIA auditors determined that the FOAG provides good/strong oversight of the Swiss Organic Program and there is good collaboration between Federal and CAs as well as with the CBs.
The organic sector is well-developed and mature with dedicated and competent personnel.
There is strong commitment and understanding from all parties involved in the implementation of the OFO
There is good understanding of the SCOEA and the requirements to accept organic products from Canada and to export organic products to Canada
This instills confidence that the certification of organic products exported to Canada meet the terms of the SCOEA.
