Moreover, custom officers will be kept up-to-date regarding the standards and certifications that will be used when dealing with emerging bio-based products and materials.
Using the solid data sets and indicators established within the BioMonitor framework, EU and national policy makers will be able to understand the bigger picture and make informed decisions by asking the right questions – in terms of job demand and opportunities and consumption of bio-based products. BioMonitor will encourage mutual understanding between the industries and the statistical and customs officers. In this way, data from both parties will sustain transparency and accountability of businesses in the bioeconomy sector.
