CertiBioNet gathers organic inspection and certification bodies all over the world.
It was founded in May 2003 by Laura Montenegro from Argencert (Argentina), Blaise Hommelen and Philippe Ghesquière from Certisys (Belgium) and Fernando Serrador from Certiplanet (Portugal).
Non-profit making association
CertiBioNet is a platform that aims to facilitate the cooperation between its members and to improve the quality of the inspection and certification systems. The resources that result from its activity or from other sources are exclusively allocated to its purpose. The control and certification bodies are the ones that actually carry out the controls.
The governing documents are the Statutes, published in the Belgian Monitor on 23 March 2003, and the Code of Ethics where rights and obligations are described. The association is governed by the Belgian law on international associations (25/10/1919).
