Technical Administrators

The Non-GMO Project’s Product Verification Program is North America’s only third-party verification program for non-GMO food and products. The Program’s integrity is reinforced by the credibility of the Non-GMO Project Standard and the expertise of third-party Technical Administrators. These independent companies determine if a product complies with our standard.

Each Technical Administrator has a unique pricing model and system for evaluating products, as well as additional services they can offer. We encourage you to research each company listed below and contact them directly to find the one that best fits your needs. It is possible to work with multiple Technical Administrators, as long as you submit different products to each company.

To begin your product evaluation, please select a Technical Administrator from the list below—they can provide you with a cost estimate and application materials. The descriptions of Project-approved Technical Administrators were submitted by each company and not created by the Non-GMO Project. Have questions? Contact our Client Services team. We are here to help!

If you are interested in becoming a Technical Administrator, please contact standard@nongmoproject.org.
