|National Sustainable Agriculture Standard (LEO-4000)|
Leonardo Academy is developing the National Standard for Sustainable Agriculture, under the rules of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). The ANSI standard development requirements provide for an open, balanced, and transparent standards-setting process that is internationally recognized.
Current Status: Standard Committee is at Work on Addressing Public Comments.
The public comment period for the LEO-4000 standard was completed on May 6, 2014. Now is the time the time for producers, processors, retailer and consumers to step up and provide feedback on the draft standard. The Standard Committee is working on developing responses to the public comments in now under way.

*This standard setting process was initiated by the April 13, 2007 publication of the SCS-001 draft standard titled Sustainable Agriculture Practice Standard for Food, Fiber and Biofuel Crop Producers and Agricultural Product Handlers and Processors in ANSI Standards Action. In the fall of 2008, theÂ Standards Committee agreed to treat the draft standard as a reference document, and a PINS was filed for this project on November 28, 2008.
