What to Know About the SOE Rule

On January 19, 2023, the USDA National Organic Program (NOP) put forth the Strengthening Organic Enforcement (SOE) Rule, which is intended to safeguard confidence in organic products and minimize fraud throughout the organic supply chain. Operations – including both currently certified and newly impacted uncertified handlers of organic products – must meet all of the requirements in the rule by March 19, 2024. See our SOE page for more details.

CCOF's "What to Know About the SOE Rule" flyer has key take-aways from the SOE regulations and explains some of the many benefits of becoming certified. Certified CCOF clients may share this document with uncertified operations in their network.
