NCO Certification fees

NCO has two levels of certification:

  1. Standard Producer – this gives the operator certification to access the domestic market through wholesalers, processors, exporters, etc, as well as access to export markets. For regulated export markets such as the USA, South Korea, and China, the operator will need to be certified to their importing requirements.
  2. Domestic Producer – this gives the operator certification to access direct marketing such as farmers markets or their own direct marketing to consumers. Domestic producers cannot sell into the mainstream organic markets.

Fees and levies vary depending on the type and size of operation.
