Steps to Verification

Interested in getting your products Non-GMO Project Verified? Complete the steps below.

Step 1: Fill out an inquiry form.

You will be prompted to submit basic information about your company and product on the Get Started page. We will answer any questions you have and provide all the information you need to begin the verification process.

Step 2: Select a technical administrator. 

The Non-GMO Project works with four independent technical administrators to provide unbiased product evaluations. We encourage you to research each company to find the one that best meets your needs. Pricing and contact information for each technical administrator can be found on the technical administrators page.

Step 3: Sign the Non-GMO Project license agreement.

This agreement outlines use of the Non-GMO Project’s name and verification mark. There are separate trademarks and license agreements for the United States and Canada; if you plan to sell verified products in both countries, you will need to sign both licensing agreements. There are no fees associated with signing our license agreement.

Step 4: Complete a product evaluation with your technical administrator.

Once you sign a contract with your technical administrator, they will request the documents necessary to evaluate your ingredients and the manufacturing facility. If you have high-risk inputs in your product, GMO testing and an onsite inspection may be required–this will be determined by your technical administrator. Upon verification, the technical administrator will issue you a certificate of compliance.

Step 5: Promote your verification.

When you have completed the verification process, the Non-GMO Project will send you the verification mark and your products will be eligible for listing on the Non-GMO Project website and shopping app. We will also connect you with our Marketing team, who will work with you to promote your products through social media and other marketing channels.

Step 6: Annual renewal.

Your product verification will need to be renewed each year. Your technical administrator will request updated documentation reflecting changes since your initial evaluation.
