FJC Standards Revisions

The Food Justice Certified Standards are currently in revision. AJP has a standard practice of revising our stakeholder-developed standards document every five years. The process is based on ISEAL’s best practices for standards revisions and typically takes about 18 months from start to finish. Your responses are invaluable to our program! Make your comments using our Online Form.

A Standards Committee is convened formally every 5 years for the FJC standards revision process. Committee members are invited to participate based on expertise or experience in a particular area of the food system the AJP standards cover. Members may be called upon on occasion in between 5-year revisions to address urgent standards revision issues.
