 Organic Certification  is a certification process for producers of organic food and other organic agricultural products. In general, any business directly involved in food production can be certified, including seed suppliers, farmers, food processors, retailers and restaurants. Requirements vary from country to country, and generally involve a set of production standards for growing, storage, processing, packaging and shipping that include :

 

         "No" human sewage sludge fertilizer used in cultivation of plants or feed of animals ;

 

         Avoidance of synthetic chemical inputs not on the National List of Allowed and Prohibited Substances

         ( e.g. fertilizer, pesticides, antibiotics, food additives, etc. ) ;

 

         "No" Genetically modified organisms, irradiation, and the use of biosolids ;

 

         Use of farmland that has been free from prohibited synthetic chemicals

        for a number of years ( often three or more ) ;

 

         Keeping detailed written production and sales records ( audit trail ) ;

 

         Maintaining strict physical separation of organic products from non-certified products ;

 

         Undergoing periodic on-site inspections ;

 

In some countries, certification is overseen by the government, and commercial use of the term organic

is legally restricted. Certified organic producers are also subject to the same agricultural, food safety

and other government regulations that apply to non-certified producers.
