Allowed or not? – Check against the evaluation criteria Some standards for organic farming provide criteria for the evaluation of inputs. In the following, it is described how biological control methods are evaluated against the criteria given in Appendix 3 of the IBS (necessity; nature and mode of production; environment; human health and quality; ethical aspects; socio-economic aspects) plus one additional criterion given in the Codex guidelines for organically produced food (“consistency with priniciples of organic production”).
It provides legally binding standards for organic production, processing and marketing of organic products.

Reg 2092/91 offers little flexibility with respect to including new inputs. For a 30 B. SPEISER, E. WYSS AND V.
