Preliminary processing of USDA certified biobased product applications continues as of Jan 21st, 2014. Manufacturers can continue to create company profiles in the USDA BioPreferred program data base; add biobased products into the program’s data base for designation by USDA; and initially apply for USDA biobased product certification Please click here to view – steps #1 and #2. You may visit this part of the BioPreferred web site here to perform any of those functions.
Unfortunately, full processing of label applications (third party biocontent determination and certification) cannot take place until new funding contained in pending Farm Bill legislation is received. As soon as funds become available, the BioPreferred program will notify applicants via email, and applications will be processed in the order in which they are received. If you have further questions, please contact email@example.com. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
