Are you SOE ready?

Do you need organic certification? Take the quiz

The Strengthening Organic Enforcement (SOE) final rule supports the continued growth of the organic market and improves oversight at critical links in the supply chain. The new regulation represents the biggest change to organic regulations since the creation of USDA’s National Organic Program. The rule closes gaps in current organic regulations and builds consistent certification practices to prevent fraud and improve the transparency and traceability of organic products. Fraud in the organic system – wherever it occurs – harms the entire organic sector and shakes the trust of consumers in organic.
