Many countries around the world have created organic farming certification systems. Others are still in development. The standards are different. In Australia, for example, they only apply for export.
In the United States, organic certification is controlled by the National Organic Program.
In the European Union, the rules are made by the European Council, which has created a label for all organic packaged goods produced in the EU. Member sates may apply their own standards and labels, but they must comply with the EU legislation.
