Huber, Beate (2005) Plant production, no special standards - US NOP 2002. [Organic rules - Differences between other regulations/standards and EEC No 2092/91]

Full text not available from this repository.

Summary

NOP does not have any provisions for special plant production.

Difference

NOP does not have any provisions for special plant production. The EU 2092/91 specifies for some plant protection products that they may only be used for special crops such as perennial crops, fruit trees, wines, olive trees and tropical crops. The US does not have such restrictions for plant protection products.

Justification

The NOP intends to provide standards for categories where the Act provides the authority to promulgate standards. NOP announced its intend to publish for comments certification standards for apiculture, mushrooms, greenhouses and aquatic animals. These standards will build upon the existing final rule and will address only the unique requirements necessary to certify these specialized operations.
