In accordance with Council Regulation (EEC) No 2092/91 as well as other subsequent regulations setting out the legislative framework about organic production of agricultural products, organic farming is defined as a management system of agricultural exploitations that enforces considerable limitations to synthetic fertilizer and pesticides usage.
The aforementioned regulations further define that organic farming promotes objectives such as the production of quality goods that do not contain residues of agrochemical substances, the development of techniques friendly to the environment, which guarantee the absence of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, as well as the implementation of cultivating methods that restore and preserve soil fertility.
According to the same regulations, obligatory controls are carried out during all organic  product stages, that is, during production, standardization, identification and trading by authorized controlling and standardizing organizations.
