CCOF is experiencing record numbers of new Handlers/Processors/Importers applying for certification. The certification process for new Handlers/Processors/Importers will take longer and could take six months or more depending on the completeness of the applications and volume of applicants. To ensure that we can continue to provide service to our existing clients, we are unable to provide expedited services to Handlers/Processors/Importers applying for certification for the first time, effective immediately. Already-certified Handlers can continue to request Expedited service for new facilities.

Fortunately, we continue to offer expedited services for all new Farm and Livestock operations.
