Since the end of January, a dedicated centralized team is following-up the official recommendations of the World Health Organization as well as those of all national governments where we are maintaining certified operations. This team informs regularly all the employees about the situation, provides safety advices in order to limit the risks of contamination and secure our operations in each concerned country.
We have been immediately taking strict measures within the whole Ecocert group by prohibiting all travels to and from affected zones whether international or local and imposing clear travel restrictions in the non-officially affected zones. Disruptions to auditing schedules may be unavoidable. Despite these disturbances, our goal is to continue delivering our services and keeping certifications ongoing without putting client's operations and employees at risk, and we are in this respect in close contact with relevant authorities as well as standards owners to implement as much as possible alternative solutions such as extension of certificate validity or completion of remote audits.

A definition recognized internationally and proposed by the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements IFOAM follows : "Organic agriculture is a production system that sustains the health of soils, ecosystems and people. It relies on ecological processes, biodiversity and cycles adapted to local conditions, rather than the use of inputs with adverse effects.
Organic agriculture combines tradition, innovation and science to benefit the shared environment and promote fair relationships and a good quality of life for all involved. The NOP regulates the standards for any farm, wild crop harvesting, or handling operation wishing to market products as organically produced.
The NOP maintains a website at www. The website contains useful information including the NOP Regulations. There are four product categories eligible for certification:. Crops — plants grown for food, feed, fiber, or used to return nutrients back to the soil.
Livestock — animals used for the production of food, fiber, and feed. Processed products — agricultural products or ingredients that have been handled, combined, processed, and packaged. Wild crops — plants from a site where there is no cultivation or agricultural management. Back to the top of the page. Certified organic products have to be produced, processed, and handled in accordance with the NOP Regulations.
Other products, commonly purchased without labels, may be verified by the certificate of NOP organic authenticity available from the business offering the product for sale.For 20 years, the Ecocert's principal activity consists in an inspection, in the field, of the respects of a standard's demands.
