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.
