Product notification

Prior to being launched on the market and pursuant to the German Regulation on Eco Labels, all products and food items bearing the national German Bio-Siegel must be notified to the product and company database!

1 How to notify a product

There are various options:

A: Online notification

Use the Online notification form provided within the Bio-Siegel Information Service’s product- and company data base.

If you notify for the first time, please enter all relevant data, at least one contact person and the respective products including their correct designations. Please upload, in pdf-format, if available, the label corresponding to each product. If there are several labels (e.g. front and back sides) for a product, please include them in one single pdf-file.

Once your registration was successful, a multi-digit customer code will be assigned for adminis-trative purposes. Please always indicate this code when you correspond with the Bio-Siegel In-formation Service.

Please note!

We shall send our newsletters with important information for you to the e-mail address you in-cluded in the company contact details.
