The National Organic Standards Board Report

OTA’s NOSB Report is a members-only publication that summarizes the twice-annual National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) meeting and provides an overview of the agenda topics, public commentary, and key decisions made by the Board. The items included in this OTA report represent recommendations that NOSB developed and reviewed at its meetings. If accepted by the Board, recommendations pass to the National Organic Program, which determines the final form of the NOSB recommendations. OTA members are notified about OTA’s engagement in the NOSB process and of the various ways to weigh-in through OTA's News Flash and Government Affairs Forum list serve. Contact Gwendolyn Wyard to learn more.
