Providing Excellence in Organic Certification
Organic Crop Improvement Association (OCIA) International is one of the world’s oldest, largest and most trusted leaders in the organic certification industry. A nonprofit, member-owned, agricultural organization, OCIA is dedicated to providing the highest quality organic certification services and access to global organic markets.
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.
Organic Product Search
Please contact a OCIA Regional Office if you need to verify an operation’s organic status.
