Comment Periods Extended for Draft Guidance and Sunset 2017 Changes

The National Organic Program announced that two comment periods have been extended.

Comments on the draft guidance on Calculating the Percentage of Organic Ingredients in Multi-Ingredient Products are now due April 7, 2017. CCOF urges all processor/handler members to review this draft guidance as it could impact product labels depending on how the calculations are made. CCOF will submit a comment on the draft guidance.

Additionally, the comment period on changes to the National List for the 2017 Sunset period was also extended to April 19, 2017.

Contact CCOF’s Policy Team for additional information on these comment opportunities.
