2002). This regulation came into force in 1991 with the aim of protecting consumers, and harmonizing producers with the definition of 'organic' production among EU member states. This provides the legal framework for accrediting private sector certificationbodies (Willer and Yussefi, 2001). It is mandatory for organic certificationbodies to fulfil the requirements of the European Norm 45011. This norm was incorporated as an amendment to the EU organic legislation, and specifies requirements for third-party organizations who operate certification systems (Marian and Felipe, 2004).

Their problems have been compounded by the long-term decline in real prices of their major primary commodity exports, despite some temporary increases experienced in the early 1990s (ht@://www. org). The consequent decline in the commodity terms of trade has reduced both the incentives to engage in the production of tradeable gains and economic stimulus of agricultural products. 2 Technological Challenges Keeping pace with the increasing domestic demand for food, meeting requirements for enhancing competitiveness and ultimately raising rural incomes, necessitate raising agricultural productivity.
