An article published on on May 22 misstated that natural certification bodies Natrue and the NPA had signed an equivalency agreement.

The two parties have been in talks but an agreement will only be signed pending approval from the Natural Products Association (NPA) board of directors in June or July, according to Natrue general secretary Julie Tyrrell.

An agreement would mean that products complying with the Natrue label or the NPA standard will be mutually recognised so manufacturers do not have to go through the full certification process again when they cross the Atlantic with their products.

Natrue has already signed an equivalency agreement with a US certifier this year. In February, the natural cosmetics lobby group signed a mutual recognition agreement with Quality Assurance International (QAI), which is behind the NSF standard.
