The Certification Process
Organic or Demeter certification
You can choose Organic certification with us allowing the use of our Organic logo, or you can choose to be Demeter certified. Organic certification is a prerequisite of Demeter certification, therefore Demeter certification will permit use of both the Organic logo & the highly respected Demeter trademark.
Step 1 – Application
Call BDA Certification on 01453 766296 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an application pack and our fee scales.
Step 2 – Inspection
Following your application you will receive a report outlining the next steps, and we will organise your first inspection.
- Farmers & growers will receive an initial certificate immediately, followed up by an inspection as soon as possible.
- Processors & traders will be issued a certificate after the first inspection and certification process. This usually takes 8 weeks.
Step 3 – Certification
Your inspector will submit an inspection report to be reviewed by your certification officer.
If everything is in order you will be issued with a new or updated certificate. Subsequently, you will be inspected annually.
