Proposed rule for 2013 Sunset review open for comments

sunsetPublic comments on the National Organic Program’s (NOP) 2013 Sunset Proposed Rule, published in the May 3 Federal Register, will be accepted through June 3. The proposed rule addresses the recommendations made by the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) pertaining to the 2013 Sunset review. The proposed rule would continue the allowed uses of multiple synthetic and non-synthetic substances on the National List. It would also remove one synthetic substance from the National List (tartaric acid). NOP is specifically requesting comments on EPA List 3 inerts, carrageenan and cellulose. Contact Gwendolyn Wyard, OTA’s Regulatory Director for Organic Standards and Food Safety, for more information.
