What to Expect
To apply for OMRI listing of your product, please first purchase an Application Kit. The kit includes:
- Login access to online applications and downloadable materials.
- Downloads of the OMRI Policy Manual©, OMRI Standards Manuals and other reference documents.
- A personalized Company Page where you can edit the list of authorized contacts and public contact information for your company and work on new product applications. Each authorized contact will receive a login.
- Application support for your email and phone application questions.
The specific information required for each application depends on the standards (NOP, COR and/or LPO) and Use Class (e.g., Crop Fertilizers and Soil Amendments, Livestock Health Care, Processing Sanitizers and Cleaners) selected in the application. Certain products could qualify as Repackaged Products*, which require a simpler application process. You will choose one of these when you download your application materials from the website. Below is a list of information that will be required for each application:
|New Product Application||Repackaged Product* Application|
You will receive a confirmation once OMRI has received your complete application. Then your product will undergo pre-review, compliance review and OMRI's Review Panel will make the final status decision.
You will be contacted throughout the review if more information is needed, or if staff has any additional questions about your product. Information about OMRI's median review time is always available on our website.

*A Repackaged Product is a current OMRI Listed® product that is repackaged and marketed under a different product or company name. In order for a product to qualify as a Repackaged Product, a supplier must not be adding ingredients or changing the product in any way, and must either hold the original OMRI listing, be a sub-registrant (pesticide products only), or must purchase the OMRI Listed product directly from the OMRI Listed supplier or authorized distributor.
‡Per National Organic Program (NOP) Guidance 5012, all liquid fertilizers with over 3% nitrogen must undergo an onsite inspection before listing. Once listed, these products must undergo two inspections per year to maintain their listing. Please see the Review Cost Page or contact OMRI for more details.
