  Accredidation and Certifying Agencies                                                

Certification is the process by which a farm is officially certified as 'organic'. One agency certifies farms as 'biodynamic organic'. This guarantees customers that the produce from the certified farm is in fact organic and free from chemicals, pesticides, and insecticides.

The certification process involves contacting a certifying agency, contracting with them for an inspection of your farm by their inspector, and upon passing their inspection, an issuance of a Certified Certificate. These certificates are subject to renewal. If you wish to enter the global international export market, your farm must be certified organic. Increasingly the domestic market in India is also insisting upon certified organic produce.

India is working with international organic farming agencies to facilitate an internationally recognized set of standards to be used during the inspection of farms desiring organic certification. Contact information for some of the certifying agencies with offices in India is listed below. This is a fast growing field, with new offices opening in India every year. If you know of certifying agencies that are not on this list but would like to be, please e-mail their contact information and we will include them here.
 
For more detailed information contact Dr. Lucas Dengel, at the BDAI Secretariat.
