Organic


Introduction

CERES conducts inspections and offers certification according to different governmental organic standards, such as regulation EEC 834/07, USDA-NOP Final Rule, and the Japanese Agricultural Standard for the Production of Organic Foodstuffs (JAS). Additionally, CERES provides inspection services for several national and international private standards of farmers' associations and certification bodies (Demeter, Naturland, BIO SUISSE, etc). With Soil Association Certification of the United Kingdom, CERES has signed a "Contract for Symbol Programme Product Acceptance".

CERES has developed two types of documents to enable clients quick access to information regarding each of the organic standards:

  • Brief Information papers give interested persons or companies an overview. Being summaries, these documents do not, however, provide the exhaustive information necessary for decision making.
  • Standard Inspection Programs give an overview of issues that routinely covered during inspections.
