Organic Integrity Database Updates

The Organic Integrity Database (INTEGRITY) is in its second full year of production, and we have recent updates to share! 

Database Upgrades and New Releases 

The INTEGRITY team continues to use certifier and user feedback to add new functionality to the system. Here are some new database features: 

  • Significant user interface improvements, including revised menus to improve navigation and access to more detailed operation information.
  • New reports, including Aggregate Crop Acreage and Aggregate Livestock and Poultry Number reports that can be sorted by product or location. These support the transition of NASS Organic Certifier Survey data collection to INTEGRITY, reducing reporting burden for certifiers.
  • A new Advanced Product Search interface and search results export to help you find more of what you’re looking for.
  • Certifiers using the Certificate Module can preview draft operation certificates before making them available to the public, generate certificates for individual operations, and can easily download all current certificates in a single file to meet record keeping requirements.
