Introduction

ALBA and NCAT have developed this Co-Compliance Guide to Food Safety and Organic Certification to help specialty crop farmers and farm organizations understand the practices and documentation required to comply with both food safety and organic regulations from planting through post-harvest activity. In an effort to thwart the burden of management and recordkeeping for two different standards, we intend to show where commonalities and differences exist. This Guide is cross-referenced to the bilingual Food Safety and Organic Certification Co-Compliance Chart, a tool that provides a quick reference of compliance records required for a food safety audit or an organic inspection.

Federal Laws and Regulations
Plans
Record-Keeping, Audit Trail and Traceability
