OEFFA Handler/Processor Fee Sheet

(DUE WITH YOUR APPLICATION)

New Applicants –  If you have never been certified, fees are based on projected gross sales from organic products and services for your first 12 months of organic certification. Organic handlers who operate their facility on a year-round basis may submit an Organic System Plan at any time during the year. Handlers who operate their facility on a seasonal basis must submit their Organic System Plan so that the initial inspection can occur when the facility is in operation. Late fees do not apply to new operations.

You are required to renew annually. The Certification staff will notify you before your renewal application is due.
