Do I need to know the manufacturing process for all of my ingredients?
Generally, if an ingredient is nonsynthetic, you will need to submit a manufacturing process that verifies the nonsynthetic nature of the ingredient. Typically, you do not need to submit the manufacturing process for any permitted synthetic ingredients or any currently OMRI Listed® products. However, if you are using an OMRI Listed ingredient that has been reviewed for a different use class or standard (NOP or COR) OMRI staff may request additional information to confirm compliance of this material.
If you are required to submit a manufacturing process and cannot get this information from the manufacturer, OMRI and the manufacturing company may enter into a third party agreement where the manufacturer may share that information directly with OMRI to preserve confidentiality.
