The AOSCA Certification Requirements and Standards Council has the authority to establish, amend, and abolish AOSCA’s official seed certification standards and approved program requirements. AOSCA’s Board of Directors and its Advisory Committee may review all Council actions pertaining to seed certification standards.
Each AOSCA vested member (seed certification agencies) appoints one representative to the Council. The Council membership elects a chairperson from within its ranks, typically at its annual meeting that is held at the same time and place as the AOSCA annual membership meeting.
Each AOSCA region annually selects one person to serve as the vice-chair of the Council. These vice-chairs help the chairperson coordinate the Council’s activities. In addition, the council may establish committees to deal with general certification issues or specific crop topics.
