Canada Organic Office


Does the Canada Organic Office recognize OMRI's decisions about materials?

At this time, the Canada Organic Office (COO) does not specifically recognize the decisions of OMRI or other material review organizations.  However, the COO is allowing Canadian Certifying Bodies (CBs) to choose whether they will accept OMRI’s material review determinations.  OMRI has worked with a variety CBs in Canada, and we are confident that most will accept an OMRI certificate for products reviewed to COR standards. However, please check with your CB before using a new product in your certified organic operation.
