USDA NOP Organic Materials Review
Americert International provides input review services for manufacturers of agricultural inputs to ensure that they meet the requirements of the USDA National Organic Program to be used in organic agriculture or organic handling. Certified organic growers and handlers can use the Americert International Organic Inputs Review Registry to identify products reviewed by Americert International as allowed for use in organic agriculture or handling.
Note: Growers and handlers should always advise their certifier in advance, before using any input, to receive certifier approval, before using any product, from any source. Not all certifiers will automatically accept the listing on the Americert registry as sufficient proof of an input's acceptability. Contact your certifier to see if they do.
