Steps to Verification

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

Step 1: 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 company can be found on the Technical Administrators page.

Step 2: Sign the Non-GMO Project license agreement.

This agreement outlines the parameters of your participation in the Product Verification Program and the use of the Non-GMO Project’s name and verification mark. You must sign a license agreement whether or not you intend to use the verification mark. There are no fees associated with signing our license agreement.

Step 3: 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 verification.

Step 4: 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 5: 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.
