Apply for Label


The first step in applying for biobased product certification and labeling is to request and receive a LEVEL 1 USDA eAuthentication account. After you have registered for eAuthentication you will use this User ID and password to login to the BioPreferred program database.

The second step is to complete an electronic application. Login Here to complete an application to apply for a USDA Certified Biobased Product Label.

Note: biobased product certification through USDA is a process that requires the application steps to be followed IN ORDER. View this process document to see the steps and their progression. Biobased product certification applicants should not test their biobased products until contacting USDA's contracted certifier and advised to do so.

Results from biobased product testing conducted outside the certification process steps can not be considered for certification applications.
