Through the IFOAM PGS Recognition program, we evaluate whether a PGS operates in accordance with the Key PGS Elements and Features and verify the integrity of a PGS vis-à-vis the Principles of Organic Agriculture. The evaluation process is entirely free of charge.
PGS initiatives that have received IFOAM PGS Recognition are granted access to the IFOAM PGS Logo, which can be used in communication materials, such as websites and brochures, but not on products.
Any PGS may apply for IFOAM PGS Recognition if they are affiliates of IFOAM and if their production standard is listed in the IFOAM Family of Standards. To initiate the evaluation process, please read the intructions for applicants and send your completed Self-Evaluation Form (SEF) to pgs [at] ifoam.bio.
UPDATE (March 2016)
The SEF has recently been revised and the only currently available version is the English one. Please check this page again in the coming weeks for the translations in Spanish, French and Portuguese.
