Canada-South Korea Organic Equivalency Arrangement.

Canada and South Korea have reached an arrangement to support market access of organic products. The organic equivalency arrangement entered into effect on November 1, 2023, and will apply to processed organic products whose final processing and handling occurs within South Korea or Canada.

Canadian organic products exported to South Korea under the arrangement must be accompanied by a valid organic certificate issued by a Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) accredited Certification body and a National Agricultural Products Quality Management Service (NAQS) electronic import certificate.
