Many operations assume that if they pay their fees they are not required to complete the contract. This is not true. Organic regulations require that all operations complete a Continuation of Certification contract, so failure to complete it will result in suspension of certification. Operations that only pay their fees or only complete their contract will force us to issue a Notice of Noncompliance.
