The OCS certification - Organic Content Standard - applies to any non-food product containing 5-100% organic material. It verifies the presence and amount of organic material in a final product. It tracks the flow of a raw material from the source to the final product and this process is certified by an accredited third party. It allows for transparent, consistent and comprehensive independent evaluation and verification of organic material content claims on products. It can be used as a business-to-business tool to give companies the means to ensure that they are getting what they are paying for and selling. The Standard does not cover the certification of the raw material itself, that will be verified independently of the production process certification. It also does not address other inputs, environmental aspects of processing (such as energy, water or chemical use), any social issues or legal compliance. The benefits of this Standard are that organic claims made on final products can be fully backed up through third party certification, transparency is increased, and consumer trust is improved. The Industry will have a clear and uniform process, leading to greater consistency, efficiency and integrity. Intended users of the OCS are manufacturers, brands and retailers, certification bodies, and organizations supporting organic initiatives. This is a voluntary standard that is not intended to replace the legal or regulatory requirements of any country. It is the responsibility of each operation to demonstrate compliance with all applicable laws and regulations related to marketing, labor and business practices.
