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.
|Table 1: Annual Company Fees|
|Annual Gross Sales for Company||Initial Review Fee||Annual Renewal Fee|
|Under $1 Million||$425||$255|
|Under $5 Million||$725||$440|
|Under $20 Million||$1500||$900|
|Over $20 Million||$2450||$1400|
|Company does not wish to disclose||$2450||$1400|
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.
|Table 2: Annual Product Fees|
|• OMRI listing of a currently OMRI Listed®product that is being repackaged (or private labeled) without modification to the original product, and that is marketed under a different name either by the original OMRI Listed supplier or by another company.
• The product must be listed in the same OMRI Class* as the original, and involves a simpler application process.
|• Products containing only one ingredient or feedstock (excluding water).
• Products that consist of a single multi-ingredient product that is already OMRI Listed. This is different from a repack as it may contain water and/or be listed in a different use class.
|• Products containing two or more ingredients or feedstocks (including ingredients that are OMRI Listed).
• Products consisting of previously formulated multi-ingredient products that are not already OMRI Listed®.
* Classes are part of the OMRI classification system that groups products with similar use attributes. Some examples of OMRI classes are Crop Fertilizers and Soil Amendments (CF), Livestock Feed Ingredients (LF), and Processing Nonagricultural Ingredients (PN). For more information on classes, please see the FAQ.
