OMRI Review Panels

OMRI's External Review Panels consist of individuals selected by the Board of Directors to provide expertise in the review of commercial products used in organic crop, livestock and processing operations. OMRI also maintains an Internal Review Panel of qualified staff members that make final status decisions under specific circumstances. All Review Panels make final decisions for newly applying products and selected products that undergo re-review. The Review Panels also consider certain decision rebuttals and appeals as outlined in the OMRI Policy Manual©.
