The NOP has published a short video,”Organic Integrity in the Supply Chain”, to review the responsibilities of organic handlers in verifying that organic imports comply with U.S. standards. The video also reviews the role of certifiers in overseeing imports and enforcing the standards. It’s just under 11.5 minutes, narrated by Miles McEvoy.
This video is an educational resource for people who work with organic imported products that involve long and complex supply chains. In May, the NOP will host webinars for both organic handlers and certifiers to review the requirements in greater depth. Look for dates, times, and access instructions for these webinars later this month.
