The National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) generally meets twice each year in a public forum to discuss and vote on recommendations to the USDA. These recommendations help the Department develop and refine the organic standards. Based on input from the Board and members of the organic community, the NOSB will meet virtually in April 2022.
NOSB Public Comment Webinars (two days): April 19 & 21, 2022; Noon – 5:00 pm Eastern Time
