Get updates on the latest and archived OGS news through the OGS Courier, a free electronic newsletter informing about the development in the IFOAM Organic Guarantee System.
A number of publications on guarantee system topics can be found in our Library.
IFOAM’s work to promote harmonization and equivalence has mostly been conducted through a long-term partnership with FAO and UNCTAD, implemented first under the ITF Project and subsequently under the GOMA project (Global Organic Market Access). IFOAM also comments on other organic standards and regulations, with a view to promote harmonization, equivalence and improvement of standards.
Additionally, IFOAM promotes guarantee systems that facilitate market access for small producers and has generated a number of tools, recommendations and positions to this end. See links below for further information.
