NICERT Provides Organic Certification Services to the Following:
The Negros Island Certification (NICERT) provides Inspection and Certification services to would-be organic producers, traders, processors, handlers, and retailers. Oftentimes, application for certification fails because of insufficient information for certification requirements and lack of close coordination between the certifying body and its client. In contrast, NICERT can work closely with its clients to ease up the certification process, align their production system to their target markets, and to help unravel the tangled organic certification requirements set by various certifying bodies at the international level. A manual for Organic Quality Control can also be developed for the producers and processors.
In order to gauge the producers and processors status towards certification, a pre-assessment is conducted to find out which of their practices are already aligned with the standards. From this pre-assessment, a program will be drafted towards increasing the chances of producers and processors to be certified either locally or internationally.
