The guide to setting up organic certification programs -The purpose of this publication is to provide guidance on how to set up an effective organic certification program, with respect to local conditions, and conform to IFOAM criteria and international norms. The purpose is also to ensure that certification programs act as service providers to the public and support the development of organic agriculture. The focus of the guide is to assist in regions where organic agriculture is in the early stages of development, but it may also be of value for already established certification programs.
