Canada Organic Standards Border Enforcement Implemented July 1

Full implementation of the U.S.-Canada Organic Regime (COR) organic export agreement came into effect on July 1, 2011. This means full enforcement of the rules regarding export of U.S. certified organic crops and products that are sent, either directly or indirectly, to Canada. Prior to this date, the Canadian Organic Office allowed a "stream of commerce" policy while the industry readied itself for full compliance with the requirements. The time for full compliance is here!
