What are the OMRI Standards?
OMRI publishes the OMRI Generic Materials List with the OMRI Standards Manual, which contains standards for products intended for use in certified organic production or processing under the USDA National Organic Program. We base these standards on the USDA regulations for organic agriculture (7 CFR part 205—also called the National Organic Standards). A separate OMRI Canada Standards Manual is available for review to Canadian Organic Standards. Suppliers receive a copy of the OMRI Generic Materials List with the OMRI Standards Manual when they order an Application Kit.
