Approved for organic production
The substances listed in Annex VII (1) have been authorised for organic production in the EU. In the group’s opinion (Expert Group on Technical Advice on Organic Production), there is a broad consensus that these substances (listed in Annex VII.1) are in line with the objectives and principles of organic production.
In the group’s opinion, the use of electrolysed water is similar to the use of sodium hypochlorite. It can therefore be used for any purpose for which sodium hypochlorite is approved, but not for any other purpose. Currently, the group sees no reason to clearly indicate electrolysed water.
