Last week CCOF submitted eight written comments to the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) ahead of their fall 2019 meeting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The meeting will occur Wednesday, October 23, through Friday, October 25. 
NOSB is the federal advisory committee to the National Organic Program and meets twice a year to provide recommendations on substances on the National List of Allowed and Prohibited Substances and the organic standards. At their spring meeting earlier this year, NOSB began their 2021 Sunset Review process and will complete the reviews of the substances in Pittsburgh. NOSB will be voting to relist or remove substances from the National List and will vote on other items.
CCOF submitted the following comments to NOSB:
2021 Sunset Reviews
Materials Subcommittee
Livestock Subcommittee
