What is certification of organic products?
Broadly, the certification process may be split into two
parts: inspection (or control) to verify that production and
handling are carried out in accordance with the standards against
which certification is to be done; and certification to confirm
that production and handling conforms to those standards.
Certification procedures for the certification of organic products
should make it possible to track and control the flow of products
from primary production at farm level through each stage of
manufacturing right to the final consumer product. Producers and
exporters will have to obtain certification against organic
standards applicable in those markets, in which they intend to sell
their products with an indication that they are organic.
