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.

How do I control certification costs?

CCOF certification offers comprehensive services at a minimal cost to our clients. We understand that keeping certification costs down is important to our clients. The following tips are great ways to save time and money:

How much does organic certification with CCOF cost?

CCOF certification is priced to provide superior value and to allow new farms, processors, and other businesses to easily enter the organic marketplace. Ongoing certification costs are based on an annual fee and the cost of the annual inspection. There is also a one-time, non-refundable application fee.

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 is the annual fee for the CCOF Certified Transitional program?

CCOF Certified Transitional program fees follow the CCOF fee schedule. Determine the annual value of what you produce (annual production value or APV), cut that by 50%, and then find the appropriate level on our fee schedule. The maximum annual certification fee for transitional operations is $1,050.00.

Inspection fees are the same for certified transitional operations as they are for certified organic operations.
