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 obtained approval for audits and certification in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. At that time, the company monitored over 700 companies.
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® 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.
