Certification is the provision by an independent body of written assurance (a certificate) that the product, service or system in question meets specific requirements. Certification is also known as third party conformity assessment.

Many companies and organizations decide to get certified to one of NSO’s natural product and/or natural management system standards, such as NSO-NAP 1 / NSO-NAP 10. This is a way of showing outsiders that the organisation has an effective natural management system and/or natural production system in place.

Looking to get Certified ?

NSO doesn’t provide natural certification or natural conformity assessment.

You’ll need to contact an external natural certification body for that.


NSO has produced natural standards to help make natural conformity assessment activities as uniform as possible across industries and across the world. Amongst other things, this reduces the need for duplication of criterias when importing or exporting,thus facilitating global trade.

We have natural standards related to performing natural conformity assessment as well as many other useful resources.
