The OCS applies to any non-food product containing 5-100 % organic material. It verifies the presence and amount of organic material in a final product. It addresses the flow of product within and between companies, raw material verification, post-harvest processing, manufacturing, packaging and labeling, storage, handling, and shipping through the seller in the last business-to-business transaction. It allows for transparent, consistent, and comprehensive independent evaluation and verification of Organic Material content claims on products by an accredited third-party Certification Body (CB).
The goal of the OCS is to ensure trust in organic content claims and uses the chain of custody requirements of the Content Claim Standard (CCS).
