Intensive Grazing Prior to Harvest Intervals

Effective June 1, 2015, CCOF will require that orchards and other crops no longer utilize intensive grazing within 90 days of harvest of a crop where the edible portion does not touch soil or soil particles. This interpretation of existing raw manure restrictions is being phased in during 2015—with an expectation that growers update their practices and organic system plans by June 1, 2015—to ensure compliance during the 2015 production year and beyond.

NOP Import Certificate Update for Mexico and Other Countries

Organic import (export) certificates are often required to accompany shipments of organic products to and from nations where the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Organic Program (NOP) has achieved an organic standards equivalency agreement or is working towards one.

Overview

Where an import certificate requirement exists, U.S. organic importers are expected to receive import certificates from their supplier for all shipments. These should be kept on file for verification by NOP inspectors and/or USDA NOP or State Organic Program representatives.

Organic Cannabis Certification?

As various states decriminalize or approve both medicinal or recreational cannabis, CCOF Certification Services is frequently asked to help ensure organic cannabis production. As an organization that envisions a world where organic is the norm, we would like to see cannabis production and processing meet organic standards. In fact, it is our understanding that the gray market nature of this production system has resulted in significant agricultural and chemical use issues.

Remove Unused Materials Today to Help CCOF Serve You

CCOF must periodically review materials to ensure that they have not changed formulation and continue to be appropriate for use in organic production. You can help CCOF reduce costs and wasted effort by removing materials from your OSP that you no longer use or do not plan to use.
