Registration of off-farm inputs

Alternatively, IMO offers the registration of off-farm inputs that implies the technical evaluation of the formulation of the products for use in organic farming according to the EU Reg. (EC) 834/07 and 889/08, USDA NOP Final Rule, 7 CFR Part 105 and JAS organic standard. This evaluation is based on documents provided by the inputs manufacturer/distributor and must be annually updated by the inputs manufacturer/distributor and sent to IMO.
Based on all information provided by the client, IMO evaluates whether the products are in compliance with the requirements of the relevant standards. The manufacturer/distributor is not allowed to use any reference to IMO approval or the IMO logo in the product labels, internet or other advertising material. IMO registration of off-farm inputs is a country-specific procedure. In order to register the off-farm input(s) for use in several countries a separate registration for each country has to be handed in.
