Sunset Info + NOSB Review Timeline
The Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) published additional information on the streamlined sunset review and renewal process and sent the NOSB a memo regarding the sunset review timeline.

We thank the NOSB for its review of allowed and prohibited substances and ongoing work to protect the integrity of organic products.
