IOAS collaboration with NOP on Country Commodity Studies

In January 2020, NOP completed two collaborative country-commodity studies with the International Organic Accreditation Service (IOAS). One commodity studied was a grain in the Black Sea region. The other was a specialty crop in Central America. These studies increase NOP capacity for effective import surveillance and setting risk-based audit priorities. The project also included training and discussions about future investigations and enforcement capability development. These studies have reaffirmed the importance of implementing Farm Bill provisions related to uncertified handlers, import certificates, and certifier oversight.
