Add processing or handling certification
For processing not covered by your crop certification, you will need to add processing and/or handling certification.
Certain processing and handling activities — e.g., seed cleaning, packing and labeling crops, etc. — for crops produced on your farm may already be covered under your crop certification.
Can I add processing certification at any time?
The addition of a processing/handling scope to your certification will require an on-site inspection by an organic inspector. Our inspection team makes every effort to combine the inspection with your annual crop inspection. If we receive your request with sufficient advance notice (at least one month prior to your annual inspection), it can save you the cost and effort of scheduling a second inspection.
