The Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) is pleased to announce that it has improved the organization of the National Organic Program Handbook and to remind you of the AMS Fruit and Vegetable Market News Organic Reporting Webinar.     
National Organic Program Handbook


The National Organic Program (NOP) works continuously to provide the organic community easy access to the information and resources that it needs to do its work. To support that goal, we recently revised the NOP Handbook Table of Contents. We consolidated related documents to reduce duplication and improve readability; added "Section H. Notices to Certifying Agents" to integrate key correspondence with certifiers; and moved a few documents to better align with section headers.  


Access Updated Version: 
NOP Handbook Table of Contents 




AMS reminds you that it will be hosting a Fruit and Vegetable Market News Organic Reporting webinar on Thursday, July 16, 2015 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. (Eastern).


The webinar will introduce the Fruit & Vegetable Market News and how it works; the scope of organic reporting capabilities; how to use the Market News Portal to access organic data and reports; and how to put organic reports to work for you.


Space is running out! Visit: registration page for the Fruit and Vegetable Market News Organic Reporting Webinar.
