USDA's National Organic Program is a federal regulatory program develops and enforces uniform national standards for organically-produced agricultural products sold in the United States. The final certiffication an organic product receives is the USDA Certified Organic Seal. Farmers and busineses must follow the standards set by the Program to have their products labeled and sold as certified organic.

Operating as a public-private partnership, the National Organic Program (NOP) accredits third-party organizations to certify that farms and businesses meet the national organic standards. USDA approved and trained agents regularly inspect growers and processors to ensure standards are met. USDA and accredited certifiers also work together to enforce the standards, ensuring a level playing field for producers and protecting consumer confidence in the integrity of the USDA Organic Seal.
