Webinar for Importer: Mexico Import Certificates

Event Date: Tuesday, January 10, 2017 - 2:00pm to 2:30pm Eastern (ET)  

Join the Agricultural Marketing Service's National Organic Program (NOP) for a webinar about the upcoming import certificate requirement for organic products shipped to the U.S. from Mexico.

Beginning January 16, 2017, all organic products entering the U.S. from Mexico must be accompanied by an NOP import certificate.  NOP import certificates are used to verify that products shipped to the U.S. comply with the USDA organic regulations and must be issued by an accredited certifying agent for products they certify.

This webinar will help participants understand their role in implementing the use of import certificates, including the need to request import certificates for each shipment of organic products from Mexico that they receive in the U.S. Participants will also have an opportunity to ask questions.

Pre-registration is not required for this webinar session.
