Proposed regulations would tighten standards food suppliers seeking to have their products certified as organic:
“Proposed new federal standards seeks to prevent organic fraud by requiring more players in the supply chain to obtain organic certification, requiring import certificates for products produced abroad, making unannounced inspections more frequent, increasing inspector qualifications, adding more data reporting requirements and strengthening prevention.”
