National Organic Program will be hosting a Listening Session on NOSB
Thursday, October 16, 2014 from 3:00-5:00 PM Eastern Time
NOP will host a listening session focusing on the NOSB, a federal advisory committee that provides recommendations to USDA. The NOP is seeking comments on NOSB administrative procedures including public participation opportunities, the petition process, and sunset review process. More information on NOSB administrative procedures can be found in the NOSB Policy and Procedures Manual, National Organic Standards Board Presentation, Petition Process, and Sunset Review Process.
The NOP will open with a short presentation; afterwards participants will be able to provide comments to the NOP. Participants wishing to provide comments will then indicate to the call operator their interest in speaking. Each person will be given 3 minutes to share his or her comment. We will take as many comments as we can until the call ends at 5 PM Eastern Time. The NOP will issue a summary of the listening session after the call.
Pre-registration is not required for this listening session.
