After decades of prohibition, the U.S. hemp industry has been reborn. Every day, more and more Americans adopt and come to rely on hemp-based products — for dietary supplements, food, fabric, construction and hundreds of other applications. With this growth only set to increase, the time is now for the hemp industry to establish and embrace standards, best practices and self-regulation.
The U.S. Hemp Authority™ Certification Program is our industry's initiative to provide high standards, best practices and self-regulation, giving confidence to consumers and law enforcement that hemp products are safe, and legal. In an effort funded by the US Hemp Roundtable, and joined by organizations such as the Hemp Industries Association®, industry leading firms, top-tier testing laboratories, and quality assessors developed comprehensive guidance for hemp growers and processors and manufacturers of hemp products. The U.S. Hemp Authority™ Certification Program was created and is administered by deeply experienced quality assurance and verification professionals who lead established food and agricultural industries.
Hemp growers and processors who comply with the U.S. Hemp Authority™ Certification Program, and are verified by a third-party audit, will be authorized to use the U.S. Hemp Authority™ “Certified” Seal in their advertising, marketing and product labeling. The “Certified” Seal will give consumers confidence that their products are safe and quality assured, while giving law enforcement assurance that the products are legal hemp.
*The U.S. Hemp Authority™ has partnered with the Hemp Industries Association® for certification training.
The U.S. Hemp Authority offers a training program through the Hemp Industries Association® to guide you through the certification process and prepare you for what the audit entails. We will discuss the following concepts and introduce you, if needed, to sources of support to assist with your compliance:
The U.S. Hemp Authority™ “Certified” Seal of quality will serve as the gold standard for the hemp industry, assuring customers of your farm's or company’s integrity and commitment to best practices. Learn from the leaders in hemp standards and education and position your operation to lead the hemp industry toward its exciting future!
