In the years 1990–1991, five organisations of organic farmers were founded, which prepared their own directives and ensured control and certifying for their respective members. However, soon it was clear that it was necessary to establish unified directives, control, certifying, and production specification. In 1993, an agreement between the MoA and the unions conduced to the introduction of the Methodical Instruction for Organic Farming as a unified national directive for organic farming in the Czech Republic. Furthermore, there was introduced a unified system of production control and specification with the logo „BIO – Organic Farming Product“. Ing. Roman Rozsypal, was appointed by the Ministry of Agriculture as a person responsible for the organic farming control. As a natural person, he conducted the control until 31 March 1999. Since 1 April 1999, a legal entity, Organic Farming Control, a publicly beneficial company (hereinafter as KEZ o.p.s.), has been authorised to carry out the organic farming control in the Czech Republic.
