WFA Submits Draft Biodiversity Guidance for NOP’s Consideration/ NOP Adds Natural Resources Standard to Their Accreditation Checklist

WFA and partners submitted Draft Biodiversity Conservation Guidance for consideration of the National Organic Program (NOP) to adopt into their Handbook.

Another breakthrough occurs--The NOP includes the natural resources §205.200 in several of their Accreditation Checklists they use to accredit organic certifiers. Many organic certifiers who were denying this was in the regulations have now changed their stance to supporting it!
