Organic Standard was founded in 2007 by different Ukrainian organic stakeholders to become the first local certifier specialized on organic inspection and certification in Ukraine. In 2009, by receiving accreditation of IOAS against Standards ISO Guide 17 065, Organic Standard became an internationally recognized inspection and certification body. Up to now, it is the only Ukrainian organic certification body approved by the EU (code: UA-BIO-108) and Switzerland.
Organic Standard provides its inspection and certification services to more than 400 organic operators within Ukraine. These represent more than 70% of all organic operators present in the country. Moreover, it controls a meaningful and growing number of operators in Belarus and Kazakhstan. As most of its clients target the international market, Organic Standard has become an important player for certification services for the export market, successfully collaborating and competing with different foreign certification bodies. In 2016, Ukraine’s clients of Organic Standard exported altogether more than 160'000 tons of organic products.
The most valuable and important asset of Organic Standard is its reputation, based on the company’s main values: competence, transparency, and partnership. The company believes in its strength to be a local certification body with international recognition. To keep inspection quality high, Organic Standard builds on reliable control of organic operators through its closeness and the professionalism of its staff while working in close partnership with different international control bodies.
