Does CCOF organic certification ensure international market access?

Yes, CCOF offers two programs designed to verify your compliance with a variety of international standards, including those for EU member states, Japan, Switzerland, Canada, and others. Which program you should enroll in depends on which markets you are shipping to, and whether your product is shipped from the US or from outside the US.

Does CCOF Perform Pesticide Residue and GMO Testing?

Yes. The Organic Foods Production Act of 1990 requires certification agencies to perform residue testing of organic product. Such testing acts as a deterrent to fraud and helps to prove to organic customers that the standards are upheld and that organic really does mean something. CCOF is granted the authority to collect samples for testing by the National Organic Program regulations section 205.670. Refusing to allow the inspector to take samples for testing may result in adverse action against your certification with CCOF.

Does CCOF provide online services?

Yes! MyCCOF is the first of its kind online organic certification management system. MyCCOF is free for all clients and provides access to records, bills, inspection reports, certificates, and more. Our website also offers a wealth of forms, payment options, and other tools to support your certification needs. We are truly committed to saving you time by providing online services.

Does non-GMO mean GMO-free?

Like other non-GMO verification programs, non-GMO does not mean GMO-free. The phrase “non-GMO” on certified organic products means that, as required by organic standards, the product was produced without the use of GMOs.

How can I control the cost of my organic inspection?

The onsite inspection is an integral part of organic certification. The inspector bills CCOF for the time and expenses of each inspection and CCOF in turn bills the inspected party. The costs of inspections vary widely. Usually, the major cost factor is the scope and complexity of an operation.
