USDA has announced revised guidelines for requesting amendments to the National Organic Program’s (NOP) National List of Allowed and Prohibited Substances (National List) in a Federal Register Notice. These guidelines implement recommendations made by the National Organic Standards Board in April 2014, and clarify the information to be submitted for all types of petitions requesting amendments to the National List. In addition, the agency has made available NOP 3011: National List Petition Process as part of the NOP Handbook to replace the previous petition guidelines published in the Federal Register on Jan. 18, 2007.
