The National Standard for Organic and Bio-dynamic Produce (the National Standard) is Australia’s export standard for organic and bio-dynamic produce. The National Standard provides the requirements for the labelling of goods which either state or imply they have been produced under organic or bio-dynamic systems. The National Standard includes requirements for production, processing, storage, transportation, labelling and importation of produce and aligns with the requirements of our international trading partners.
As of 1 January 2022, the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment will manage the National Standard for Organic and Bio-Dynamic Produce (the National Standard). The National Standard Advisory Committee (NSAC) support the department by making recommendations for amendments, revisions and updates to the department quarterly.

The NSAC is a committee of individuals, acting independently of any organisation. The committee is responsible for reviewing and making recommendations to the department on amendments, revisions and updates to the National Standard.
