ResponsibleAg (RA) is a joint venture of the Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) and The Fertilizer Institute (TFI). It is being founded for the purpose of stewarding regulatory compliance throughout the chain of custody for fertilizer products, with the end result of increased safety and security for employees and communities, as well as continued availability of these vital products to American agriculture.
The proposal addresses the online platform that would be used to register companies, receive and post audit scores uploaded by inspectors, and allow all suppliers to access those scores. The product (custom programming), website and the data it will contain will be the exclusive property of ResponsibleAg.
