What is involved in the process? What is the first step?

The first step is to go to our website and request a certification packet. Complete the organic system plan (OSP), and submit your application and fee to OneCert.

Then as you implement your OSP, OneCert will review it for completeness and compliance.  After this, we will send an inspector to your operation to evaluate the execution of your OSP.  Finally, OneCert will review the inspector’s report for compliance to the standards and make a decision regarding your operation’s organic certification.
