OMRI is now offering product review aligned with Canadian Organic Regime (COR) standards, in addition to the existing Review Program under U.S. National Organic Program (NOP) standards.
How It Works
This service is currently available as a pilot program only for products already OMRI Listed® to NOP standards. Product suppliers with current OMRI Listed products may log in to access the OMRI Canada Standards Manual© and application materials for COR review.
Products that OMRI has reviewed and determined are allowed in organic production according to Canadian standards will be included on a public OMRI Canada Products List©. These products will have the option of using either the new OMRI Canada seal or the USA / Canada seal.
In preparation for the new program, OMRI has recruited a team of knowledgeable experts with experience evaluating inputs to COR standards, to make final product listing decisions. OMRI is pleased to welcome Rochelle Eisen, Garry Lean, and Kelly Monaghan as the first OMRI Canada Review Panel members. Read more and review their bios here.

New! OMRI Canada Products List
The OMRI Canada Products List© is a list of all products that OMRI has determined are either Allowed or Allowed with Restrictions under the Canada Organic Regime standards. This list is only available as a PDF download, and the OMRI web search does not currently identify products that have been reviewed to Canadian standards.
