United States Standards for Grades of Mangos, 38091 [05-12968]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 126 / Friday, July 1, 2005 / Notices CFR 205.606 does not establish a blanket exemption to the National List requirements for nonorganic agricultural products that are not commercially available. On June 9, 2005, the district court issued its final judgment and order in the case. A copy of the final judgment and order may be found at https://www.ams.usda.gov/nop. The First Circuit’s decision recognized that some producers, handlers and certifiers may have misinterpreted 7 CFR 205.606 to mean that any nonorganic agricultural product which was determined by an accredited certifying agent to be not commercially available in organic form could be used in organic products, without being individually listed pursuant to the National List procedures. The court held that such an interpretation is contrary to the plain meaning of OFPA. However, because of the potential for confusion, and to enable an orderly transition to compliance with the regulation, the district court’s order regarding the meaning of 7 CFR 205.606 shall become effective and enforceable two years (June 9, 2007) from the date of its judgment and order. Dated: June 27, 2005. Kenneth C. Clayton, Acting Administrator, Agricultural Marketing Service.
