     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.
