Certification System Framework

This Sound and Sensible resource package includes a series of technical documents that provide a framework for developing an organic certification system. The package includes sample forms and data entry screens that can support the organic certification process; lists and definitions of data fields (called a data dictionary) that capture information about a certified organic operation; and relationship diagrams that should have the different data fields and forms connect.

This series of tools can be used by an organic certification organization, working closely with a technical lead that is well versed in data structures and database design. The documents will primarily be understandable to a technical lead or system/data architect, who will guide the requirements and design phase of a software development project.
