Update for 2015 - Québec Organic Designation Specification Manual (Parts 1 and 5)

Changes have been made to Parts 1 and 5 of the Specification Manual used to control the organic designation in Québec. They will come into force January 1st, 2015.

They are aimed primarily at clarifying the scope of the Act respecting reserved designations and added-value claims with respect to the organic designation and harmonize labeling prescribed for products using this name to the requirements of the Canada Organic Regime. However, the technical certification requirements and the permitted substances list remain unchanged.
