Products produced under the national food quality scheme
Draft Order of the Minister for Agriculture of the Republic of Lithuania approving the Rules of the National Food Quality System and repealing certain orders of the Minister for Agriculture
The project integrates and updates the principles agreed with the social partners for voluntary application of the national food quality scheme as defined in Article 16(1)(b)(i), (ii), (iii), (iv) of Regulation (EU) No 1305/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council and the requirements for products produced under the national food quality scheme and for bodies certifying those products.
