USDA/AMS RIN: 0581-AD09 Publication ID: Spring 2011 
Title: National Organic Program, Streamlining Enforcement Related Actions 
Abstract: This rulemaking would amend sections of the NOP regulations which pertain to the adverse action appeals process. It would require the Agency to initiate formal administrative proceedings for proposed suspensions or revocations of accreditation or certification issued by the NOP. According to the current NOP regulations, a formal administrative proceeding is initiated following the decision of the Administrator to deny an appeal. This rulemaking would omit the step of appealing to the Administrator when NOP has initiated the adverse action. This action would also amend the NOP regulations to require appellants who want to further contest a decision of the Administrator to deny an appeal to request a hearing. According to the current regulations, the formal administrative proceeding is initiated by default upon issuance of the Administrator's denial.
