What if I miss a step in the process? Will I still be able to remedy this

You run the risk of your product being delayed at Port if you don't provide the required documentation.
The delays will affect your Customers receiving their orders in time and they may received product with a short shelf life than your agreement allows for.
Organic Products that don't have COIs provided in time run the risk of product not being able to enter the market and be sold as Organic.
