FAQ: List of Certifying Agents  

 
Where can I find a list of USDA accredited certifiers?

 
A current list of USDA-accredited certifying agents is available on the NOP website. This list is updated in real-time and reflects a current listing of available certifying agents that can provide certification to the USDA organic standards.

 

 
International Trade Agreements. The NOP also has trade agreements with multiple countries, which allow indirect accreditation of a number of foreign agencies in their respective countries.

 

 
Operators seeking organic certification may choose from any USDA-accredited certifying agent or a certifying agency through an international trade agreement if they are located in the countries covered by agreements. Each certifying agents listed contact person can provide specific information on certification processes, fees, and technical policies.
