There is a non-refundable application fee of $100 upon submitting an application to the Certified Non-GMO by AGW program. Discounts are available when applying for two or more certifications simultaneously (e.g., Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW or Certified Grassfed by AGW). Once an application has been reviewed, an additional fee to cover the audit will be charged. Applicants will also be required to cover lab testing expenses for sample(s) collected at the time of the onsite audit. All fees are nonrefundable. Please see the AGW Fee Schedule for more details.
Before applying, you should review the Certified Non-GMO by AGW standards to make sure you believe they are consistent with your farming practices and values. For livestock and poultry producers: Please do not apply unless you have already applied (or are currently certified) for Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World, and currently have animals on your farm. This is an optional, additional accreditation.
Questionnaire/SIPS/MIPS language: On receipt of your application we will forward you a Certified Non-GMO by AGW Questionnaire, Single Ingredient Specification Form (SIPS) (if applicable) for single ingredient products and/ or a Multi Ingredient Specification Form (MIPS) (if applicable) to be completed for each multi ingredient product. Alternatively you can download the forms from the links above and upload it with your application.
Testing Template language: If you are feeding, growing, or processing products considered be high-risk by the Certified Non-GMO by AGW program (see CNGMO Standards Appendix 1), a written testing protocol must be provided at the time of the audit. The Certified Non-GMO Testing Template may be utilized to fulfill this requirement.
PDF of Labels language: Labels of your ingredients, feed, and/or inputs are required for review prior to your audit. Please ensure all photos and scans of your labels are saved in PDF format and upload the labels with your application.
