NOP Publishes Letter on Organic Crop Container Systems

On June 3, 2019, the National Organic Program (NOP) published a letter to certifiers titled, “Certification of Organic Crop Container Systems.” This memo summarizes the rules that certifiers must follow when determining the eligibility and compliance of container systems for organic crop certification. The letter clarifies that the Organic Food Production Act requirements related to the three-year transition period apply to all container systems built and maintained on land.

The letter is posted on the AMS website and is available through the NOP Handbook.
