The National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) is the advisory board to the National Organic Program (NOP). The NOSB is responsible for making recommendations for allowed and prohibited substances but they also advise on other aspects of implementing the NOP. The board holds two meetings a year that are open to the public and accepts written and oral comments to inform decision-making and recommendations regarding policies, standards and issues within the organic movement.
