Transaction certificates may accompany shipments of organic product when an export certificate is not required and the importer requires further documentation of the compliance to NOP standards. A transaction certificate may be used to export to countries other than Japan, Taiwan, the EU member states, and Switzerland. They can also be used for domestic transactions. You can request a transaction certificate by submitting a Transaction Certificate Request Form, found on our Forms & Documents page. Remember to follow the instructions on the Export and Transaction Request Cover Sheet closely to ensure you have included all critical information.
