USDA Publishes National Organic Standards Board Proposals in Advance of April Meeting

In advance of the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) meeting scheduled for April 19-21 in Denver, Colorado, USDA last week published a revised agenda and meeting materials.  The meeting will include the first discussion of substances that are scheduled to sunset from the National List in 2019, as well as a proposal on organic seed guidance, and a discussion document on aeroponics, hydroponics, and aquaponics.

Written comments are due to USDA by March 30, and the public is invited to register to provide oral comment either in-person or during a webinar on April 13.  Visit the Spring 2017 NOSB website to register to provide comments, or contact us if you’d like help!

Karlin Strategic Consulting will be at the Denver meeting – looking forward to advocating for the continued strength of the organic regulations; and to connecting with certified organic operations!
