For quality assurance, we have compiled regulations and recommendations from a number of international organizations such as the United States Composting Council, British Standards Institution, and US Environmental Protection Agency.
These international guidelines provide quality assurance protocols for the physical, chemical, and biological condition of compost. Each batch of compost from CIC undergoes immediate pathogen testing which helps ensure that CIC Organic Compost is safe to use and free of pathogens.
