Peer Review of the 2023 SIP Certified Standards

July 14


Peer Review of the 2023 SIP Certified Standards

The SIP Certified standards undergo a peer review by representatives from the university and extension system, state and federal agencies, agricultural professionals, and environmental and social organizations every five years.

Our Technical Advisory Committee then carefully considers each individual comment to make improvements, adjustments, and clarifications to maintain robust and comprehensive Standards.

The 2023 SIP Certified Standards peer review was completed in February 2022, and the Technical Advisory Committee reviewed the comments in March 2022.
