BrandWiki's opinion:

trustworthy and sustainable Greenpeace AT 2018

The label defines minimum standards, many other organic labels go beyond those standards (AMA Bio, Bio Austria, Prüf Nach!). It is therefore trustworthy for organic products, but not the best organic label.

Since 2009, the certificate is issued via accredited national institutions. The EU monitors the compliance of the member states. Each certification body is inspected annually.

Minimum standards for organic products are defined, among them free outlet for live stock, strictly regulated use of antibiotics, prohibited use of chemical-synthetic pesticides and Fertilizers, the use of food additives, or genetically modified ingredients.

In Austria, the label can be certified via agroVet GmbH.
