MPI Official Organic Assurance Programme (OOAP)

We work with New Zealand's Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) to provide the required third party assurance, where government to government official assurance is required.

Any operator exporting to the regulated markets covered by the Official Organic Assurance Programme (OOAP) is required to register with MPI as an organic exporter, and declare each consignment through the use of an export certificate request.
