Existing law, the California Organic Food and Farming Act, requires the Secretary of Food and Agriculture, county agricultural commissioners, and the Director of Public Health (Director) to enforce state and federal laws governing the production, labeling, and marketing of organic products and requires every person engaged in California in the processing or handling of specified products for human consumption that are sold as organic to register with the Director. Existing law requires the Director to provide a registration form for those purposes and requires specified information on the registration form.

The bill would require the Director to create an online registration and payment option on or before January 1, 2025.
