The National Organic Program has issued final guidance for accredited certifying agents and certified and exempt organic operations to clarify federal regulations about substances used in the post-harvest washing, packing and storage of organic products. The document specifically addresses: “(1) What substances may be used for post-harvest handling; (2) the difference between ‘post-harvest handling of raw agricultural commodities’ and ‘further processing’; and (3) the regulatory requirements for facility pest management.” See Federal Register, January 15, 2016.
