New Applicants: 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. 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. Late fees do not apply to new operations.

Certified Operations Renewing Certification with OEFFA: OEFFA’s handler certification application fee is determined by your operation’s gross sales from organic products and services in 2021. This fee is due with the OSP for Handlers. The deadline for Group A renewing operations is March 31, 2022 and September 1, 2022 for Group B.

Inspection fees and expenses are additional and will be billed after the inspection. Your inspector will contact you to discuss these fees before your inspection. The inspection fee is determined by the complexity of your operation, the number of sites the inspector must visit, the length of the inspection, and the travel expenses incurred by the inspector. Inspection fees typically range from $250 to $1,000.
