The NOP is launching a new database for certified organic operations’ data, called the Organic INTEGRITY Database. The database provides updated information about all USDA NOP certified organic operations in the hope of deterring fraud, increasing supply chain transparency, and promoting market visibility for organic operations. CCOF worked closely with the NOP to ensure the database would continue to function as a resource for domestic and international buyers, and is continuing to work with the NOP to improve the system.
Over the coming years we expect to further integrate our data into the NOP framework to help foster improved market research. In the interim, it will include more detailed product information. We encourage CCOF operations to carefully review their products, crops, or livestock during inspections to ensure their list is accurate and up to date. CCOF expects to update the NOP database on a monthly basis.
