The BAES is the competent authority for the recognition and approval of seed and planting material.
The certification of seed from and for organic farming requires a special process control during the entire certification procedure. In this process, not only the conformity with the relevant legal bases concerning the certification of seed is checked, provided that there are legal regulations on seed for the respective crop type, but also additionally the fulfillment of the requirements for propagation areas, seed lots and processing stations as defined in Regulation (EU) 2018/848. This ensures the publication of all seed lots approved for organic farming in this organic seed database, as well as the labeling on the official seed label.
Only those lots are listed in the database which have a final positive recognition or approval and which are also intended for the final consumer, i.e. no propagating material (breeder, pre-basic and basic seed) is recorded.
Here you come to the database for organic seeds and organic plant propagation material
