Should I inform CCOF if I am moving my operation to a new address?

Yes! Always submit changes that may affect compliance to CCOF for review. Changes to your facility location may require an update to your OSP and an additional inspection.

If your address is changing because your office or billing location has changed, simply complete the Equipment, Facility or Address Change Form and confirm that no organic storage, processing, or packaging occurs there.

What are export and transaction certificates? How do I request one?

Export and transaction certificates are used for exported products to demonstrate the product's compliance with the applicable standards of the destination country. The certificates contain transaction-specific details, such as the lot number(s), net weight, and the unique serial number that the certifier issues for each export certificate. Your consignee (importer or freight consolidator) will require an original export certificate so your product can clear customs. Copies of the signed export certificate are not sufficient for the customs authorities.

What are fillable forms and how do I use them?

Fillable forms are versions of frequently used and/or modified documents that are available in electronic format for easy editing. Each form is a Microsoft word document formatted and locked to allow you to easily enter your data. Available forms include material review requests, annual certification contracts, parcel transfer, withdrawal and additional acreage documents. For processors, additional products, private label profiles, name and seal use agreements, and more. You must have Microsoft word to utilize our fillable forms.

What if I pay my bill but do not complete the renewal contract or vice versa?

Many operations assume that if they pay their fees they are not required to complete the Annual Renewal Contract. This is not the case! Organic regulations require that all operations pay annual certification fees, and complete a continuation of certification contract (CCOF's Annual Renewal Contract) every year. Failure to complete the contract will result in suspension of certification.

What if I'm currently certified by a different certification agency?

No problem! CCOF staff are happy to assist currently certified operations tranfersing their certification to CCOF. We also offer a fee waiver for the one-time application fee.

To receive the fee waiver, complete the Certification Transfer Form and submit it to CCOF with your application and valid certificate from your current certifier. Contact us today to discuss your needs.

What is a CN number?

“CN” means “combined nomenclature.” A CN code is a customs/tariff designation required in box 13 of export certificates for the EU. CN codes are published in the Official Journal of the European Union.

Disclaimer: While CCOF can assist in determining CN codes, the accuracy of CN codes used on export certificates is ultimately the responsibility of the client.
