Standards that define "certified organic"?

When a grower or processor is "certified organic," a International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM), Agricultural Products Export Development Authority (APEDA) accredited public or private organization has verified that the business meets or exceeds the standards set forth in the Indian (National standards for Organic Programme) / USA (National Organic Programme)/ European Organic Rules (Euro 2092/91). This means the farms and facilities have been inspected by the certifying agency and random samples of products, soil and water have been taken and tested. This also means having elaborate Internal control systems and documentation.
