About ICS

IFOAM definition: An Internal Control System (ICS) is a documented quality assurance system that allows an external certification body to delegate the annual inspection of individual group members to an identified body/unit within the certified operator.

This means, in practice that a growers group basically controls all farmers for compliance with organic production rules according to defined procedures. The organic certification body then mainly evaluates whether the Internal Control System is working well and efficiently. The evaluation is done by checking the ICS documentation system and staff qualifications and re-inspecting some farmers.
