The 2010 Organic Assessment of China is now available online. Capturing NOP’s assessment of certifying agents operating in China, the report discusses the country’s organic industry, reviews assessment scope and methodology, discusses product and soil sampling results, and draws conclusions about certifier competence in China.

NOP Program Handbook: The majority of the NOP’s guidance, instruction and policy memo documents have been reformatted for the purpose of facilitating consistency in section headings and their contents. This may have caused text to be moved into different sections. Any substantial alterations to the text are noted as “Revision” or “Deletions” in the “Technical Changes” table of the Summary of Changes document.
