Non-GMO Project Working Standard 4/36 Effective July 21, 2009 1. INTRODUCTION Explanation of layout of this Standard: This Standard is published in two columns. The left-hand column contains clauses of the Standard itself. The corresponding right-hand column contains Guidance notes that are included to help interpret and explain the intent of the given standard clause, offer additional relevant details, and/or place the clause into the context of current realities. Guidance notes should be read along with the Standard’s clauses and must be followed accordingly. Where no Guidance is offered, the Standard alone suffices.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
