About the Standard

The Non-GMO Project Standard is a consensus-based document that has been crafted with the insight and expertise of dozens of individuals, reflecting a dynamic range of perspectives. Beginning with a 60-day public comment period in October and November of 2007, ongoing public comment periods have been established as an important mechanism for keeping the Standard current and collaborative. The most recent public comment period ended August 14, 2015.

Version 12 of the Non-GMO Project Standard was ratified May 2015.
