Third Party Certification of Food—2015 Inquiry

Submission Overview

The ECA is now pleased to make the following observations regarding third party certification of goods. However, in doing so, the ECA wishes to make clear that it is only commenting on this issue so far as it relates to food for export and its comments do not apply to certification of origin of goods are required to claim preferential status under Australia's FTAs.

The ECA does not provide certification services for product claims. The ECA neither encourages nor discourages it members regarding certification. As with any certification, each manufacturer or brand owner needs to decide for itself whether the commercial benefits of certification outweigh the costs.
