Updating of NOP National List

 2017 Sunset Review Final Rule

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) has published the Sunset 2017 final rule.   

Removals from the National List. This final rule removes the following three synthetic substances and five nonorganic agricultural substances from the National List for use in organic production and handling. 

  • Lignin sulfonate (as a floating agent in postharvest handling);
  • Furosemide;
  • Magnesium carbonate;
  • Chia;
  • Dillweed oil;
  • Frozen galangal;
  • Frozen lemongrass; and
  • Chipotle chile peppers

Organic forms of chia, dillweed oil, galangal, lemongrass, and Chipotle chile peppers continue to be allowed in organic products and are not affected by this action.

Renewals to the National List: Based on public comments to the Sunset 2017 Proposed Rule, USDA is renewing the listing for three substances on the National List: inulin-oligofructose enriched, Turkish bay leaves, and whey protein concentrate. These three substances have been renewed for use in organic handling, and will be reviewed again by the NOSB as part of the 2022 Sunset review.
