A service for all ORganic stakeholders
IFOAM – Organics International has partnered with bioC to launch a Global Organic Certification Directory. This is a service for the benefit of the entire organic sector, and is designed to operate efficiently at low cost to all users.
Secure, easy to use, and cost-effective
Certification bodies (CBs) can easily publish the data of their certified operators on the bioC platform using secure interfaces. Because CBs input the data, there is no way for fraudulent operators to show fake certificates.
Certified operators, CBs, traders, government officials, consumers, and any other stakeholder can use the system to verify the organic status of any given operation. The system allows a user to maintain customized lists of organic suppliers, and get informed when the certification status changes. This adds great efficiencies for staying in and demonstrating compliance with program requirements. Data is strictly protected based on user-specific permissions.
The bioC platform is able to function in multiple languages and can be specified for any given government regulation or private standard. Searches can be done based on operator, country, and standard/regulation.
Certification bodies are encouraged to join with the others who are already using bioC for their own benefit and the benefit of their clients. The more CBs enrolled, the more effective the platform is.
IFOAM Affiliates and IFOAM Accredited CBs receive a 10% discount on fees.
bioC also offers a Full Service Option in certain countries, which you can learn more about here.
