Section through is the National List of allowed and prohibited substances for organic production. It is important to note that the U.S. EPA does have a label "for organic use" that indicates that the pesticide product has been reviewed and approved by the EPA for organic production. according to the National Organic Standards. An important part of being prepared is being able to track your product from the eld or point of purchase to the consumer, ensuring that the product has been kept separate from non organic products and has not been contaminated in any way by materials prohibited for use in organic production.

This rule also proposes to add sixteen new substances on the National List to be allowed in organic production or handling: Hypochlorous acid; magnesium oxide; squid byproducts; activated charcoal; calcium borogluconate; calcium propionate; injectable vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes; kaolin pectin; mineral oil; propylene glycol; acidified sodium chlorite; zinc sulfate; potassium lactate; and, sodium lactate.
Certified organic producers and handlers must use only materials that are approved for use according to the standards to which they will be certified. Use without pre-approval could lead to suspension or denial of certification of the affected land and/or products depending on the nature of the product and the use.For more information, read the NOP's Guidance, " The Use of Chlorine Materials in Organic Production and Handling."
