  • The National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) meeting occurs twice a year. This year the meeting will take place in Louisville, Kentucky from October 28-30. The board convenes to listen to public comments, discuss specific items pertaining to organic agriculture, and vote on recommendations for the NOP to consider. Currently, the NOSB has six subcommittees working on various topics of interest to the NOP. The subcommittees are Compliance, Accreditation, and Certification; Crops; Handling; Livestock; Materials/Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO); and Policy Development.
