The National Organic Program (NOP) released a new report and two policy memos as part of the program’s Organic Enforcement Action Plan
The report, Organic Import Oversight: Collaboration Opportunities and Technology Needs Assessment, responds to recommendations from the USDA Office of Inspector General on oversight of imported organic products. The report details NOP’s recent activities and the steps it is taking to collaborate with the Department of Homeland Security Customs and Border Protection and USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS). 
NOP’s new Policy Memos also address organic trade:
