National Organic Standards Board Spring Meeting 2022

National Organic Standards Board

Spring Meeting 2022

Comment Period Open through April 1, 2022

The National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) generally meets twice each year in a public forum to discuss and vote on recommendations to the USDA. These recommendations help the Department develop and refine the organic standards.

Based on input from the Board and members of the organic community, the NOSB will meet virtually in April 2022.

NOSB Public Comment Webinars (two days)

  • April 19 & 21, 2022; Noon - 5:00 pm Eastern Time

NOSB Public Meeting (three days)

  • April 26-28, 2022; Noon - 5:00 pm Eastern Time

Stakeholder Engagement Encouraged

The NOSB invites public comment, both written and oral, on its agenda topics. Interested parties are encouraged to review the online meeting materials, including the tentative agenda, subcommittee proposals, and discussion documents.

Deadlines: To be considered during the Spring 2022 Meeting, written comments must be received by 11:59 pm ET on Friday, April 1, 2022. This gives the Board time to review the comments before the meeting.

Oral comment speaking slots are limited to the number that can be heard during the two webinar days. Speaking slots often fill up quickly, and registration may close prior to April 1, 2022.

All meeting materials, including the agenda, public comment registration links, and details on how to submit written comments are on the NOSB Spring 2022 Meeting webpage.
