Complete an Organic Management Plan (this will be sent to you with your approval letter) and submit to us for approval prior to your initial inspection.
An initial inspection is arranged by us with one of our organic inspectors. An initial audit is conducted for those new to organic certification as well as those transferring from another organic certifying body.
An audit report is written by OFC’s inspector and you will be asked to sign the audit report.
The audit report is reviewed by OFC certification staff for compliance to the National Standard.
Certification is granted or a Corrective Action Request (CAR) is issued which needs to be addressed before certification can be granted.
A certificate is sent to you once certification is granted.
