NOP Letter on Organic Crop Container Systems

This memo summarizes the rules that accredited certifying agents (certifiers) must follow when determining the eligibility and compliance of container systems for organic crop certification. In this memo, the term container system includes container, hydroponic, and other plant pot-based systems, with or without soil as the growing media. Certifiers and operations must meet the requirements of the Organic Foods Production Act (OFPA) of 1990, as amended (7 USC §§ 6501-6522), and the USDA organic regulations (7 C.F.R. §§ 205.1-205.699).

The OFPA, Section 6502 defines a certified organic farm as “a farm, or portion of a farm, or site where agricultural products or livestock are produced.” Section 6504 specifies the standards for organic production:

“To be sold or labeled as an organically produced agricultural product under this title, an agricultural product shall: (1) have been produced and handled without the use of synthetic chemicals, except as otherwise provided in this title; (2) except as otherwise provided in this title and excluding livestock, not be produced on land to which any prohibited substances, including synthetic chemicals, have been applied during the 3 years immediately preceding the harvest of the agricultural products; and (3) be produced and handled in compliance with an organic plan agreed to by the producer and handler of such product and the certifying agent.”

The USDA organic regulations implement these requirements at 7 CFR 205.202, stating that “any field or farm parcel from which harvested crops are intended to be sold, labeled, or represented as “organic,” must…. have had no prohibited substances, as listed in §205.105, applied to it for a period of 3 years immediately preceding harvest of the crop.” This requirement is referred to as the three-year transition period.

The National Organic Program (NOP) has consistently allowed for the certification of container systems as long as the certifier determines that the system complies with OFPA and the USDA organic regulations. This is consistent with 7 USC 6512, which states: “If a production or handling practice is not prohibited or otherwise restricted under this chapter, such practice shall be permitted unless it is determined that such practice would be inconsistent with the applicable organic certification program.”

This memo clarifies that the legal requirements related to the three-year transition period apply to all container systems built and maintained on land.

Certifiers must consider two questions when certifying container systems:

• Eligibility: Is the land eligible for organic production?

• Compliance: Is the system compliant with the USDA organic regulations, and can it maintain compliance?


Consistent with the OFPA and USDA organic regulations, certifiers must confirm that organic crops have been produced and handled without the use of synthetic substances (with the noted exceptions of synthetic substances allowed for organic crop production on the National List of Allowed and Prohibited Substances); and must not be produced on land to which prohibited substances have been applied during the three years immediately preceding the harvest of agricultural crops.

This means that certifiers are to assess land use histories for container system sites, just as they would for an in-ground soil-based system. If a prohibited substance was applied to the land at the farm or site within the three-year period before the first organic harvest, then the harvested crops shall not be sold, labeled, or represented as “organic” until the three-year period has passed. If the operation documents that no prohibited substance was applied within that three-year period, then the land may be eligible for container system production, just as it would be for a soil-based system.


• A container operation wishes to construct a container system on a plot of land and provides evidence that no prohibited substance has been applied within three years before the expected harvest. This land may be eligible for organic production.

• A container operation is proposed to be constructed on land that was treated with a prohibited substance within the past year. This land would not be eligible for organic production until three years had passed between the application and projected harvest.

Ongoing Compliance

Once certified, certifiers must assess container systems for ongoing compliance with the USDA organic regulations. No prohibited substances may be applied anywhere in the system, including on the land underlying the system, or in the system itself.

Certifiers must evaluate the compliance of the overall system, including maintaining or improving natural resources, supporting nutrient cycling, promoting ecological balance, and conserving biodiversity.

This memo applies to all new container systems that have not yet been certified under the organic program. It is not retroactive to already certified operations and sites. All currently certified container system operations retain their certification as long as they maintain compliance with the regulations.

NOP Notice on Ready-to-Use Mushroom Spawn

NOFA-NY was recently notified by the USDA National Organic Program (NOP) of a policy clarification regarding ready-to-use mushroom spawn for use in organic mushroom production.

Ready-to-use spawn (see definition in italics below) must be certified organic to be approved for organic use. If you have been using non-organic, ready-to-use spawn, please discontinue use, and submit a plan for sourcing spawn or certified organic ready-to-use spawn by May 1, 2019.

Additional information from the NOP on this decision is provided below:


For the purpose of this notice, the term “ready-to-use spawn” is defined as colonized substrate prepared for producing harvestable mushrooms (fruiting bodies) in situ with proper humidity and temperature control. In contrast, the term “spawn” is defined as colonized media used to inoculate substrates on which mushrooms are grown. Ready-to-use spawn may be produced in a variety of formats, including but not limited to, formed as blocks, packaged into plastic bags, or shaped into logs. For example, “shiitake mushroom logs” may consist of plastic bags containing mixtures of fibrous materials (e.g., wood chips, sawdust, wheat bran, husks), processed mined substances (e.g., gypsum), and mushroom inoculant.


NOP Instruction 4009 in the Program Handbook stipulates a certified operation may not, “Allow an uncertified operation to produce or handle agricultural products, under contract or other arrangement, on the uncertified operation’s land or premises (i.e., at units, facilities, or sites not explicitly subject to inspection or compliance action by the NOP or a certifying agent).”

Because ready-to-use spawn includes all components to produce harvestable mushrooms, it is considered an agricultural product under the USDA organic regulations (see § 205.2 definition of agricultural product). Ready-to-use spawn used in organic mushroom production must be produced by certified organic operations (see § 205.100(a) What has to be certified). Certification is essential to ensure that an accredited certifying agent conducts annual inspections of the production facility and reviews substrates and spawn in these products for compliance with USDA organic regulations.

It may be argued that using non-organic ready-to-use spawn products, such as “shiitake mushroom logs,” is equivalent to using non-organic seed when not commercially available. The NOP disagrees with this assessment, because “shiitake mushroom logs” are not used to inoculate medium at the certified operation to produce a crop in a related manner that seeds are planted into soil to produce a seedling. Rather, the pre-inoculated “shiitake mushroom logs” contain the spawn, growth medium and nutrients required to produce a mushroom crop upon watering and are not placed in new containers or growth medium at the certified operation. Additionally, “shiitake mushroom log” producers might argue that they do not require certification because they do not handle any certified organic ingredients. We disagree with this argument because they are producing an agricultural product for use in certified organic production. To ensure equal oversight to entities involved in organic mushroom production and to ensure organic integrity, “shiitake mushroom logs” and other ready-to-use spawn products used in organic mushroom production must be produced by a certified facility.

Importing Products Requirement

Posted 8.3.18

Certified producers importing products should be prepared to provide additional information during inspection or to the certification office to ensure they meet the NOP 4013 Interim Instruction.  You are deemed an importer if you are a shipment’s importer on record (direct import) and also if you are the first United States certified organic operation taking title, receiving, or selling import products. 

Proper documentation for imported products may include organic certificates, import certificates/attestation statements, purchase records, shipping documents, receiving records, and labels, along with records confirming organic integrity was maintained with respect to transport, fumigation with prohibited substances and/or irradiation.

Records should list lot numbers, volume, name of last certified operation, receiving party, etc. so that product can be traced through the supply chain.  Whenever possible, documents should designate products as organic.  We understand that not all governing bodies require this designation. 

If you purchase organic goods from uncertified importers or brokers, Uncertified Handler Declaration Form may be required.

Organic Recordkeeping Requirement & Resources

Posted 5.14.18

Keeping complete and accurate records is critical to the integrity of the organic program.   

An annual mandatory inspection examines the integrity and accountability an organic operation, from pest management to soil conditions to contamination prevention and more. The ability to openly audit and trace any certified organic product or crop from beginning to end is critical to maintaining consumer confidence and creates a strong foundation to address any issue with quick action.

Resources are provided to assist an operation in this important component.

USDA Withdrawal of Organic Livestock & Poultry Practices

Posted 3.13.18:

USDA has announced the decision to withdraw the Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices (OLPP) final rule published on January 19, 2017. The rule would have increased federal regulation of livestock and poultry for certified organic producers and handlers. The withdrawal becomes effective May 13, 2018.

December 2017

USDA Proposed Withdraw of Organic Livestock & Poultry Practice Rule

Posted 12.20.17:

USDA published a notice in the Federal Register  on December 18.2017 with intent to withdraw the Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices final rule.  This rule has been under development by the organic community for over a decade. The notice opens a public comment period through January 17, 2018.  Comments are being accepted through

 This final rule was expected to be in effective on May 19, 2017 but was delayed three times and now proposed for withdraw by the USDA, under current administration on the premise that it exceeds USDA’s statutory authority.

 NOFA-NY strongly supports the rule and its importance in ensuring organic integrity by setting forth specific, verifiable, and achievable standards that protect organic animal health and wellbeing.   Many individuals and organizations have work tirelessly over the past decade getting such a rule developed.  NOFA-NY already certifies to most of the standards in the rule and has advocated that all certified organic livestock and poultry producers be held to the same high standards.

EU Export Certificates OnLine System (TRACES)

Posted 6.26.17: 

As of April 2017, export certificates to the EU, called Certificates of Inspection (COI), can be issued through TRACES (Trade Control and Export System), and with full implementation required by October 17, 2017.

This change is aimed at improving traceability, enhancing food safety, and reducing fraud.   To comply with the new regulations, NOFA-NY Certified Organic, LLC can now issue electronic Certificates of Inspection (eCOIs) through this new system. To get set up in this new system, NOFA-NY certified exporters should request an Operator role within TRACES, which NOFA-NY will approve. Once approved, the Operator is responsible for starting the eCOI request and entering all the shipment details. NOFA-NY will receive this request and process it, sending the eCOI to the first consignee.

Currently, a physical COI will also need to be sent with the shipment, or directly to the importer. The EU is working to implement fully electronic certificates in the future.   Additional benefits of the new system are notifications to all relevant parties as the eCOI moves along the supply chain, as well as a built-in product catalog. This enables the Operator to quickly find the corresponding Harmonized Schedule code ensuring organic products are properly accounted for in trade statistics. 

Register to TRACES now.  Educational Materials can be found on our website.

June 14th - NOP Training Webinar for Organic Handlers

Posted 6.1.17: 

On June 14, the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) National Organic Program (NOP) is holding a one-hour training webinar for organic handlers. The topic is Organic Integrity in the Supply Chain.

Organic handlers play a vital role in the global organic control system, which includes strict production standards; accreditation of certifiers; certification of farmers, processors and handlers; and enforcement. 

AMS has identified violations of organic regulations involving shipments of soybeans and corn entering the U.S. and enforcement actions are underway.  We are investigating other evidence related to other shipments of soybeans and corn.

To help guard the integrity of organic imports, this training webinar focuses on the role of organic system plans and recordkeeping systems in ensuring organic integrity of imports, and highlights critical control points that will be audited during inspections. 

All organic handlers are encouraged to attend this broadcast webinar.  Because we expect a large number of attendees, this webinar will be “broadcast only.” You will be able to hear us, and will be able to chat questions to us using your keyboard.

Webinar Logistics: 

Date:  Wednesday, June 14, 2017

Organic Livestock & Poultry Practices Final Rule

Posted 4.24.17: 

This rule sets production standards for organic livestock and poultry, including transport and slaughter. This action assures consumers that organically produced products meet a consistent standard by resolving the current ambiguity about outdoor access for poultry. It also establishes clear standards for raising, transporting, and slaughtering organic animals and birds. This rule will provide for effective compliance and enforcement, as well as fair competition among organic livestock producers.

Key points of new rule: 

  • Requires that producers provide animals with daily access to the outdoors and that outdoor areas include vegetation and/or soil. Additionally, exit doors must be distributed to ensure animals have ready access to the outdoors. It does not allow enclosed porches to be considered outdoors or to meet the requirement for outdoor access.
  • Specifies the amount of space required indoors for chicken broilers and layers, prohibits forced USDA Agricultural Marketing Service | National Organic Program 2 molting, restricts the use of artificial light, limits the amount of ammonia in the air indoors, and requires perching space for laying chickens indoors.
  •  Describes when producers can confine animals indoors temporarily and codifies flexibility for producers to confine animals when their health, safety or well-being could be jeopardized.
  • Adds humane handling requirements for transporting livestock and poultry to sale or slaughter, and clarifies humane slaughter requirements.
  • Prohibits several kinds of physical alteration, like de-beaking chickens or docking cows’ tails.
  • Provides a phased implementation plan, allowing producers reasonable time to implement the rule

The Final Rule goes into effect on May 19th.   Make sure you understand the rule and how it affects your operation and organic system plan.  NOP Website        NOP Q & A

USDA Video for Certified Organic Handlers Importing

Posted 4.10.17:

The USDA Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) National Organic Program (NOP) protects the integrity of USDA organic products throughout the world, so consumers can trust the organic label. The size and complexity of organic trade has grown over time, and many U.S. businesses rely on imports to create the organic products that consumers want. As the organic market grows, many growers, processors, and handlers are working within multi-business supply chains, often across borders.

The global organic control system includes strict standards; certifier accreditation; farm and business certification; and enforcement. Within this system, organic handlers play a vital role in protecting the integrity of organic products from farm to market in complex supply chains.

The NOP has published a short video to review the responsibilities of organic handlers in verifying that organic imports comply with U.S. standards. The video also reviews the role of certifiers in overseeing imports and enforcing the standards.

This video is an educational resource for people who work with organic imported products that involve long and complex supply chains.

Natural Resources & Biodiversity Conservation

Posted 3.31.17:

The general natural resources and biodiversity conservation requirement of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) organic regulations at 7 CFR § 205.200 requires operations to “maintain or improve the natural resources of the operation, including soil and water quality.” Section 205.2 of the regulations defines “natural resources of the operation” as the “physical, hydrological, and biological features of a production operation, including soil, water, wetlands, woodlands, and wildlife.” 

NOP Guidance 5020 Natural Resources & Biodiversity Conservation

The Wild Farm Alliance has published a Biodiversity Conservation Guide to assist organic farmers and certifiers in determining appropriate conservation activities.
