FOR MAINTAINING CERTIFICATION SERVICES
We appreciate your decision to certify with us and hope that you will choose to renew your certification with OTCO for 2018. We’re committed to providing you with the highest quality services and programs.
The Organic System Plan (OSP) Renewal Application is designed to accomplish all requirements — even if you hold multiple classes of certification (e.g., crop and livestock) — in one simple form. To continue your organic certification, you must complete the OSP Renewal Application and submit certification fees by January 1, 2018 or April 1, 2018 depending on your operation’s assigned deadline.
Option 1: Renew online
You can use the online renewal form below to complete your certification renewal and submit payment.
