Review Cost

OMRI’s review service fees are scaled to meet the needs of companies with various sizes and business models. The cost of a product review is dependent on the company’s total gross sales for the past year, and the type of product to be reviewed. Please follow these step-by-step instructions to determine the total cost for the initial review of your product. The tables also list the annual renewal fees. OMRI can only accept fees paid in US dollars.

 

Step 1: Purchase an Application Kit to access all materials needed to apply to OMRI. If you have already purchased an Application Kit, skip this step.
Step 2: Select the Company Fee from Table 1 that best suits your company’s gross sales for the past year. If you have other products that are OMRI Listed®, skip this step.
Step 3: Select the Product Fee from Table 2 that best matches your product.
Step 4: If any of the Additional Fees in Table 3 apply, add that to your total.

 

In addition to the fees listed on this page, there are several less common fees that OMRI may charge for certain products. Miscellaneous Fees may be required under uncommon circumstances, including wire transfer, rebuttal, arbitration and "for-cause" inspections. Company or Product Change fees are charged for reviewing certain changes made to currently OMRI Listed products. All changes should be submitted using the Change Report Form.

Company/Supplier Fee (required)

The Company Fee is based on the applying company's total gross annual sales. Total gross annual sales include sales from all products and services provided or distributed by the applying company, not just the sales of a particular product or product line. The Company Application Fee is due with the company's first product application, and is renewed annually at a reduced rate. This fee is only necessary once per year, regardless of the number of products listed by your company.

Product Fee (required)

A Product Fee is required for each distinct product name. If the same formulation is sold under different names, it is considered a Repackaged product and requires a separate application. Different formulations sold under the same product name are considered “Alternate Formulations” and do not require separate applications (see Table 3 below for relevant fees).

The Product Fee is based on the number and type of ingredients in the final product. Tables 2 and 3 below define product type and the associated fees.
