Input confirmations according to different international organic standards are not an organic "certification" in the strict sense, because neither Regulation (EC) 834/2007, nor NOP, nor JAS consider farm inputs among the scope of certifiable products. Such confirmations are based on a private programme by CERES.Benefit to customer
- Farmers can easily find out if an input is allowed or not.
- Input manufacturers need to disclose confidential information only to one certifier.
- Other certifiers do not need to investigate compliance for inputs that have already been approved by a reliable certifier.
