Handling Subcommittee

The Handling Subcommittee (HS) makes draft recommendations for consideration by the Board to provide guidance, clarification or proposed standards of the handling and labeling sections of the organic regulations as contained in [7CFR Part 205] and OFPA. The HS reviews petitions, substances scheduled to sunset, technical advisory panel reports and public comments concerning materials used for processing and handling which have been requested for addition to or removal from the National List. The HS occasionally works with other subcommittees to develop joint recommendations where handling issues are involved.
