NJDA LAUNCHES NEW ONLINE ORGANIC REGISTRATION SYSTEM
Contact: Lynne Richmond
(TRENTON) – New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture Douglas H. Fisher today announced a new online system designed to streamline the registration process for anyone selling or distributing certified organic products in the state.
The New Jersey Forms and Registration Management System, known as NJFARMS, can be accessed at www.njfarms.nj.gov. The system allows people to create, access and/or renew their Organic Registration. They also are able to add, update, and/or delete locations, print current registrations and check their registration status.
“The NJFARMS online organic registration is just the first step in allowing New Jersey Department of Agriculture registrations, licenses, forms and applications to be completed, paid for, and managed online,” said Fisher. “We have always placed a strong emphasis on providing our constituents with fast and efficient service. NJFARMS is an even more convenient way to do business.”
State regulations require those selling or distributing or attempting to sell or distribute certified organic products in New Jersey and all United States Department of Agriculture accredited certifying agents providing organic certification services in the state to register with the New Jersey Department of Agriculture.
New Jersey Department of Agriculture organic registration does not constitute organic certification. To learn more about organic certification in New Jersey, visit: www.nj.gov/agriculture/divisions/md/prog/jerseyorganic.html.
In the future, more functions will be added to NJFARMS to include other department regulatory programs.
