ACO Testing in the Spotlight

michael auditing low resACO conducts sampling of both soil and certified products during onsite inspections, as well as the marketplace. This testing looks at organochlorides, organophosphates, triazines, synthetic herbicides & fungicides and heavy metals such as arsenic, lead, chromium and mercury. The aims of these tests are to ensure that the organic certification principles are being adhered to and add another layer of third party verification for the consumer that the products they are purchasing are indeed certified organic.

ACO will also be focusing product testing on imported products and packaging contamination to ensure products coming from overseas are meeting Australian Certified Organic requirements.
