International certification bodies, including members of the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM)
An international framework for organic farming is provided by the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM), the international democratic umbrella organization established in 1972. For IFOAM members, organic agriculture is based upon the Principles of Organic Agriculture and the IFOAM Norms.
The IFOAM Norms consist of the IFOAM Basic Standards and IFOAM Accreditation Criteria. The IFOAM Basic Standards are a set of "standards for standards." They are established through a democratic and international process and reflect the current state of the art for organic production and processing. They are best seen as a work in progress to lead the continued development of organic practices worldwide. They provide a framework for national and regional standard-setting and certification bodies to develop detailed certification standards that are responsive to local conditions.

Legislated standards are established at the national level, and vary from country to country. In recent years, many countries have legislated organic production, including the EU nations (1990s), Japan (2001), and the US (2002). Non-governmental national and international associations also have their own production standards. In countries where production is regulated, these agencies must be accredited by the government.

Organize a General Assembly every 3 years. The members elect the World Board, who works with Affiliates to committees, working groups and task forces to the development of standards for Organic Agriculture in developing countries.
Founded in 1972, is a global international organization for the organic world. Sustainability in agriculture, from the farms and field, to the consumer, products and public. Organic vision with sustainable policy, to build capacity and facilitate the transition of farmers to organic agriculture, and support to the organic movement and leaders.
In 1972, the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements, widely known as IFOAM, was founded in Versailles, France, and dedicated to the diffusion and exchange of information on the principles and practices of organic agriculture of all schools and across national and linguistic boundaries.
