UKROFS archive

Prior to the establishment of ACOS in 2003 the Competent Authority in the UK for organic production was UKROFS, the United Kingdom Register of Organic Food Standards. UKROFS was an executive non-departmental public body. Although UKROFS no longer has any legal status in the UK the work it did is still relevant and useful. Much of UKROFS output is archived here.
