The National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) generally meets twice each year in a public forum to discuss and vote on recommendations to the USDA. The comment period is open through September 29th and these recommendations help the Department develop and refine the organic standards.
The NOSB will meet in Sacramento, California in October, 2022. The in-person meeting will be webcast live for those who are not able to travel. Should circumstances not permit an in-person meeting, the meeting will be held virtually. Updates will be posted to the meeting webpage found here: https://www.ams.usda.gov/event/national-organic-standards-board-nosb-meeting-sacramento-ca-2022
