usdaThe National Organic Program (NOP) is the legislation that regulates the production and labeling of organic products in the United States since 2001 and is managed by the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture).

Bioagricert is one of the Italian control and certification bodies authorized to certify organic production thanks to the recognition obtained by the USDA.

Operators wishing to export to the USA can choose two different methods:

  • Apply for NOP certification
  • Export under the EU-NOP equivalence regime.
