Important COSMOS update

Important update to the cosmetics chapter of our Australian Certified Organic Standard (ACOS) from 1 May 2019

Last year Australian Organic Ltd & ACO Certification Ltd surveyed cosmetic clients in relation to proposed changes to Cosmetic certification and logos.

<p”>In view of the feedback and in conjunction with COSMOS, there are a few very important changes to the standard and use of relevant logos.

As of 1 May 2019, the Australian Certified Organic Standard (ACOS) will not have a detailed section on cosmetics. It will now simply reference the COSMOS Standard. As a result, ACOS certified cosmetic manufacturers will have the option of certifying cosmetic products to the COSMOS Standard and/or the National Standard for Organic and Biodynamic Produce.

Please see the letter issued from our General Manager, Niki Ford in regards to the important changes below:
