Organic handlers who operate their handling 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 inspection can occur when the facility is in operation. If you have never been certified, fees are based on projected gross income from organic products and services for 2020.
