The purpose of organic inspections is to confirm that your operation meets the National Organic Program (NOP) standards and regulations both before it is certified and every year after as long as it remains certified. Inspectors do this by confirming that what you say in your application, called an Organic System Plan (OSP), is what you are doing in practice.

An excellent, low-cost resource titled Preparing for Organic Inspection, which includes checklists and other resources, is available from NCAT's Sustainable Agriculture Project.

Inspection reports follow the OSP line by line. A CCOF qualified inspector will conduct the inspection in an efficient manner.
