The 2023 SIP Certified Standards are Live!

Every five years, 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.

This Peer Review process ensures we maintain a robust and comprehensive program, receive insight from experts who aren't directly tied to the program, and keep the Standards up-to-date and relevant in the sustainable agricultural and wine business.

The Peer Review of the 2023 SIP Certified Standards was completed in February 2022 by fifteen experts in various fields. The Technical Advisory Committee reviewed the comments in March 2022.
