Full text not available from this repository.

Summary

Apiculture products may be certified to the existing NOP regulations which will be amended in future rulemaking to cover any unique production and handling requirements.

Difference

NOP does not have specific provisions on apiculture. The EU Regulation 2092/91 has specific provisions.

Justification

The NOP intends to provide standards for categories where the Act provides the authority to promulgate standards. These standards will be build upon the existing final rule and will address only the unique requirements necessary to certify these specialized operations.
