Agricultural Production Standard 1.2.0 United States Amendment

Last Updated: July 22, 2021

The United States Amendment is a supplement to the Agricultural Production Standard (APS) that provides additional guidance on how APS requirements apply to organizations and producers operating in the United States’ complex legal landscape, as well as further clarifications for those in the dairy industry. The United States Amendment applies to organizations in the United States working with the Fair Trade USA APS version 1.2.0. It shall be used by all applicants and Certificate Holders in the United States when implementing the APS, and by all Conformity Assessment Bodies when assessing against the APS in the United States. The United States Amendment is currently available in English, with a Spanish translation following later in 2021.
