Learn about our history
a group of pioneers with a passion for the land, aware of the need to protect the soil and biodiversity, started the organic farming movement. No organic specifications existed at the time. Everything had to be put in place! These organic pioneers helped draft European regulations and national private specifications.
The European Organic Regulation was established. Blaise Hommelen created the company ‘ECOCERT BELGIUM’ to take up the challenge of reliable and credible audits and certification of organic agriculture and to enable businesses to get the best out of their products.
ECOCERT BELGIUM was recognised by all Member States of the European Union with regard to its audits. The company took off and hired its first employees.
ECOCERT BELGIUM obtained approval for audits and certification in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. At that time, the company monitored over 700 companies.
ECOCERT BELGIUM expanded its auditing and certification activities internationally. That same year, the private Ecogarantie® specification was created to certify cosmetics and cleaning products not covered by the European organic regulation.
ECOCERT BELGIUM changed its name to CERTISYS®. The company employed 24 people. An auditing system based on risk analysis was developed to better target audits in the field.
CERTISYS® revamped its visual identity to reaffirm what makes it unique: its 100% organic commitment and its expertise as a pioneer in organic certification. Thanks to a motivated team of over 50 employees, the number of participating companies exceeded 3,000.
CERTISYS® strengthens its position as the market leader of organic certification in Belgium and accelerates its development in the Benelux region by joining the ECOCERT Group.
