USDA Renews Charter For The National Organics Standards Board


The USDA-AMS recently completed a review of the Charter of the National Organics Standards Board (NOSB) that will expire on July 7th 2024.


Changes that have been effected for 2022 include allocation of four seats re-designated for Special Government Employees, consistent with the Organic Foods Production Act that specifies that Board composition should include expertise in specific areas.  These comprise environmental protection, resource conservation provided by scientists with expertise in either toxicology, ecology or biochemistry.


The four Special Government Employee positions will be filled as existing members of the Board rotate after their respective terms of office expire.
