Organic Oversight & Enforcement Update

The National Organic Program (NOP) protects the integrity of USDA organic products in the United States and around the world. NOP’s primary role is to regulate and enforce national standards to protect the farms and businesses that have invested in organic, and ensure consumers can continue to trust the USDA Organic Seal.

Today, AMS is sharing a new Summary of Activities and Overview Action Plan that provides:

  • A summary of significant recent actions NOP has taken to protect the integrity of organic imports.
  • An overview of the plan of action to implement new practices that strengthen the National Organic Program’s enforcement and oversight capabilities.
