The National Organic Program (NOP) develops, implements, and
administers national production, handling, and labeling standards for organic
agricultural products. The NOP also accredits the certifying agents (foreign
and domestic) who inspect organic production and handling operations to
certify that they meet USDA standards.
CHICKEN FEED
"Certified Organic Product" indicates that produce and its associated
farming process(es) have been inspected over a period of time (typically a
period of approximately 3 years) by an independent, third-party
certification agency to verify organic authenticity to consumers. Several
such certification agencies exist across the country. These agencies conduct
inspections to ensure that:

1) No harmful chemicals or prohibited substances have been applied to the
growing field for at least three years;

(2) Documentation exists demonstrating that the operations consistently
adhere to the strict standards required to be met for qualification for annual
certification;

(3) Detailed records of the farming practices have been maintained; &

(4) Ecologically friendly methods and substances for improving the soil and
controlling pests have been utilized.
