The National Organic Program (NOP) is pleased to announce an updated fact sheet on labeling organic products.

Additionally, if you are going to Natural Products Expo East, we hope you will stop by our booth and say hello!

Labeling Organic Products

A majority of the compliance and enforcement cases we close involve product labeling. To support proactive compliance, we have updated our labeling fact sheet to lay out the rules of the road for both certified and uncertified operations. It includes:   

  • When the USDA organic seal may be used.
  • When and how the word "organic" may be used.
  • Which products must be overseen by a certifying agent.

We love using the NOP Organic Insider to update you on actions and announcements related to our oversight of organic products. But, if you are going to be in Baltimore next week for Expo East,it would be great to meet you in person and put a face with a name!

Stop by booth 1927 to check out our new display and meet NOP staff responsible for compliance and enforcement, standards, communication, and more!
