Fraudulent USDA Organic Certificates

Falsely representing products as certified USDA organic violates the law and federal organic regulations. Using fraudulent docu
market, label, or sell non-organic agricultural products as organic is punishable by fines of up to $11,000 for each violation.

Certifying agents and organic operations should continue to guard against these practices and practice caution when purchasin
from suppliers. Anyone suspecting a violation of the regulations can report a complaint to the NOP Compliance and Enforceme

Fraudulent certificates may have been created and used without the knowledge of the operator or the certifying agent named
certificate. The posting of fraudulent certificates does not necessarily mean that the named operator or certifying agent was in
illegal activity. If an operation named in a fraudulent certificate is certified, its certifying agent identified in the list of certified o
can provide additional information and verifications to the organic trade.
