The Low Risk Assessment Program is available to clients who do not export products out of their home province, whose production systems do not include both organic and non-organic crop production or organic and non-organic livestock production, have no outstanding conditions, have had an organic certificate for the past three years and have been a PACS client for at least two years. This program has reduced inspection requirements but participants are subject to the possibility of unannounced inspection during the inspection-free years.
PACS application forms are posted on this website for easy access and there are Brand Names Lists which have been developed by the PACS for the use of our clients. Links to these sections of our website are protected, requiring a password for access.
The Canadian Organic Standard, the Permitted Substances Lists, the PACS Handbook for Organic Operators and the PACS Quality Manual are all posted here for public access.
A File Transfer Form is available for prospective clients wishing to transfer to the PACS from a different certifying body and the Initial Certification Registration Form for all prospective clients is also available.
We have Events and Notices page which is available to all members for posting of upcoming events or happenings that would be of interest.
