October 15, 2014: Workshop on organic market data collection and publication procedures in Istanbul, Turkey


In the morning of October 15, the third day of the Organic World Congress (www.OWC2014.org) in Istanbul, Turkey, a workshop of the OrganicDatanetwork will take place.

The workshop is entitled "Organic market data collection and publication procedures: the Code of Practice of the OrganicDataNetwork (OrMaCode)".

The Code of Practice will consist in a list of principles/objectives and related indicators covering the different key areas of organic market data collection, processing, storage and publication/dissemination.

It will be consistent with the European Statistics Code of Practice (COM(2005) 217 final). OrMaCode is intended to be a tool for guiding future organic market data collection, processing and dissemination in Europe. Associated to the OrMaCode we will produce a practical Manual. The manual will contain specific guidelines for applying OrMaCode.
