Nearly 80 agents are currently authorized to certify farms and businesses to the USDA organic regulations. Most USDA-accredited certifying agents are allowed to certify farms and businesses anywhere in the world. Farmers, ranchers, and processors may choose to work with any USDA-accredited certifying agent.
To help you find a certifying agent, the Organic INTEGRITY Database (INTEGRITY) has an Organic Certifier Locator. The Organic Certifier Locator is updated regularly by the National Organic Program and its accredited certifying agents. As part of the database, it provides the most accurate information about accredited certifying agents.
Once you click the “Locator” button, INTEGRITY opens the “Certifier Locator” feature. There, you can use the drop down menus and search field to find one or more certifiers. You can use the navigation buttons at the bottom of the page to move through the list or export search results to an Excel spreadsheet. For questions regarding the database, click the Contact Us link shown on top right of the page; otherwise, please contact individual certifying agents for more information.
