OMRI Review Panels

The OMRI Review Panels consist of individuals selected by the Board of Directors to provide expertise in the review of commercial products used in organic crops, livestock, and processing operations. The Review Panels make decisions regarding commercial products' statuses for newly applying products and selected products that undergo re-review. The Review Panels also consider certain decision rebuttals and appeals as outlined in the OMRI Policy Manual.
