Transfer of Certification

Where advantageous to the operator, NCO will assist to facilitate transfer of an existing Organic Certification to NCO Certification. The process requires the forwarding of key documentation including a current certificate of registration and farm map/plan. The attached  pdf Transfer to NCO Certification Info Sheet (23 KB) provides further details of the process of transfer.

Export to the US

There are additional organic product requirements for export entry into US markets. Exporters must meet additional accreditation requirements under the USDA National Organic Program (USDA-NOP)

NASAA is your first point of contact to advise on the requirements for, and latest updates on, the USDA-NOP Standards and Guidelines. Certification to the USDA NOP Program can be undertaken seperately or in addition to existing NCO licenses. Contact the NCO Office for further information.
