Newsletter Tariff system updated

Tariff system for 2021. 

The current tariff systems for our services are published on our website, and you can see it over this link (agriculture) and link (processing). We are happy to inform you that we have only one amount for the agricultural certification service and that the cost of inspection per hour is reduced for all of our clients. Furthermore, appreciating your recommendations to your friends and business partners about ABG, we have started a project called „ABG Clients recommending ABG services * – DISCOUNT“, which means that for each new signed Inspection contract according to your recommendation, you can get a one-time discount listed in the tariff system on your next invoice. Please pay attention in the fee systems at the last two boxes of the tariff system (agriculture) and tariff system (processing) – we are at your disposal for any questions. 

Reminder for FISA 

We remind all clients who have not yet submitted the FISA for 2021. That the deadline for submission is May 17th for farmers and November 15th for traders/processors/importers/exporters. 

Transaction certificates 

According to the national legislation, Order 895/2016, the transaction certificates are issued on the transaction date or in maximum 30 days for the operators who sell quantities higher than 500 kg in case of unprocessed agricultural products and 100 kg in case of bee products and processed agricultural products outside of Romania. 

To obtain such a certificate, send a request to us containing the following documents: 

- copy of the transport document (BL: Bill of Lading for water transport, CMR (consignment note): for land transport, AWB: Airway Bill: for air transport, consignment note, etc. .), 

- copy of incoming invoices or an equivalent document; 

- possible other necessary documents for Austria Bio Garantie GmbH Enzersfeld Bucharest Branch, at his request. 

These documents must include the clear name of the products, their organic status as well as the reference code of the control body, the batch number and the clear name of the consignee. For the products purchased from third party operators, Austria Bio Garantie GmbH Enzersfeld Bucharest Branch will also ask for the acquisition documents of the respective lot containing both the transaction certificate and the supporting document of the supplier. 

The steps taken to issue a CT scan are: 

- The operator informs the inspection and certification body Austria Bio Garantie GmbH Enzersfeld Bucharest Branch before the transaction is performed. 

- The inspectors Austria Bio Garantie GmbH Enzersfeld Bucharest Branch, in the presence of the head of the County Agricultural Directorate, take samples from the lot to be sold and send them for analysis to laboratories subcontracted by Austria Bio Garantie GmbH Enzersfeld Bucharest Branch.

After finishing the process of a transaction certificate with the analyse report will be issued and submitted to the client. 

Please send us these requests in a timely manner, so that we can comply with its issuance within the period provided by law, if not we would like to inform that a warning could be given during the next inspection.
