The National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) was established via the Organic Foods Production Act of 1990, part of the 1990 Farm Bill, which authorized the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture to appoint a 15-member National Organic Standards Board (NOSB). "The board's main mission is to assist the Secretary in developing standards for substances to be used in organic production. The NOSB also advises the Secretary on other aspects of implementing the national organic program." [1]
