The Colorado Department of Agriculture requires an employer conducting audits/inspections of farms and businesses that house egg-laying hens, or produce, pack, store, and transport shell eggs and egg products for sale into the state, to seek a certificate of accreditation in order to certify farms and business as compliant with Colorado Cage-Free regulations.
An application must be filled out by an authorized person for the third-party certifying employer.
- Upon approval of the application, a Certificate of Accreditation will be emailed to the employer.
- Click on the blue box to fill out the Accredited Certifying Agent Application.
Note: Starting in January of 2023, we will provide a list of approved agents/companies that have received their accreditation.
