Member Transaction Certification

OCIA's Transaction Certificate (TC) system allows an OCIA certified operator to enter the details of a particular organic sale transaction, which is then processed by the OCIA International office for issuance of a TC. The TC is not an official trade document, rather an aid for certified operators in keeping their necessary audit trail documentation in place so that certified organic product can be easily traced through the chain of custody.
