Exporting Your Organic Product

1. Product Review

Organic products must comply with or be equivalent to the standards of a foreign market to be sold as organic in that market. CCOF provides verification to these requirements through our Global Market Access (GMA) and Mexico Compliance Programs. Products must be reviewed and compliant before an export certificate can be issued. Review international market compliance on your Client Profile. If you are not sure if your operation meets necessary standards for a destination market, contact your Certification Service Specialist or email

2. Shipment Ready

Once you know the details of your shipment you will need an export certificate or transaction certificate for each shipment of goods. These documents verify that the product to be shipped meets necessary standards for the destination market, either through equivalence or direct compliance.

3. Export Certificate Request

Complete the appropriate certificate below using the instructions on the last page of the packet and provide a shipping address for the original certificate using the cover sheet. In most cases, the original will be needed to clear the shipment with Customs in the country of import. Exports to the EU or Switzerland are electronic only and do not require a cover sheet with shipping instructions. Send entire packet to and allow 2 business days for processing for most export certificates and 5 business days for NOP Import Certificates.
