Annual certification fees are comparable to the cost of a kosher mark.

They generally start at about $500 per year, up into the thousands for a large, complex brand.

Small businesses may take advantage of our $99 per year offer.

It should be noted here that the annual certification fee is always considered an advertising expense. Although tax laws vary by state, advertising expenses are normally tax deductible at a federal level--but do check with your accountant.

Note that The OVerus Organization donates 12% of gross income to organizations that support the Judgment of Nations: feed the hungry, drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked, welcome a stranger, care for the sick, and visit those in prison. 2% to each.

* Note: OVerus reserves the right to deny certification to any brand.

There is no application fee.

Steps to Certification

  1. Fill out the form under the Start the OVerus Certification Process" heading on our Get Certified page.
  2. An Account Executive (AE) will be assigned to help you. The AE will be your designated point of contact at The OVerus Organization. They will be available to answer your questions, address your needs, and guide you through the certification process. They will contact you within five (5) business days of your submission.
  3. Complete and submit the OVerus application. Your AE will provide you with this form.
  4. Documentation review. Your application and inspection report will be reviewed by your Account Executive who will advise you whether or not OVerus can grant certification. In some instances adjustments may be required for certification to be awarded.
  5. Legal contract. The Account Executive will present a legal contract which specifies the certification agreement. If acceptable to you, the contract is signed, and a letter of certification is sent to you.
  6. Final approval. You may then sticker or affix the OVerus emblem to your products and submit your labels for final review.
  7. CONGRATULATIONS! You have now joined a family of companies which proudly carry the OVerus Emblem.
