Our innovations

Since the 1990s Ecocert IMOswiss AG has pioneered the inspection and certification of organic products and has made a name for itself in many other sectors by developing control systems, standards and services.
Special expertise has been developed in the field of smallholder group quality assurance schemes (ICS), for which Ecocert IMOswiss AG has designed a specific training manual and alone in Latin America more than 130 smallholder groups are certified for low-input organic production systems.

Ecocert IMOswiss AG has developed and effected numerous in-house and external trainings of operators, managers, quality responsibles, field officers, and staff members. This as well on an individual as on an institutional level. Amongst others, we have compiled a Training Curriculum for IFOAM (International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements) for both producer groups and for inspectors and evaluation personnel of smallholder groups on Certification & Evaluation of Internal Control Systems (ICS) and a training scheme and manual for sustainable collection of wild plants (ISSC-MAP, supported by SIPPO and GTZ). Furthermore, Ecocert IMOswiss AG acted as competent expert for all aspects related to certification and development of local agencies and offered consultancy in the development of national organic regulations.
