Review for Canada

Question: 

How does OMRI review products for Canada?

Manufacturers submit an application with information about all ingredients and manufacturing processes, as well as additional information specific to the product Use Class and Category. The review process is conducted in accordance with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) requirements for certification organizations.  OMRI has established a Canadian Review Panel comprised of experts in the Canadian organic community to make final decisions regarding products for use in Canada. The OMRI Policy Manual and OMRI Canada Standards Manual¬© provide a complete overview of the review process and are available by request or as part of the Application Kit order.
