GlobalG.A.P. Integrated Farm Assurance Scheme
Area of Application
G.A.P. stands for Good Agricultural Practice – and GLOBALG.A.P. is the worldwide standard that assures it. GLOBALG.A.P. is an affiliate organisation of a not-for-profit trade association with a crucial objective: safe, sustainable agricultural production worldwide. It sets voluntary standards for the certification of agricultural products around the globe - and more and more producers, suppliers and buyers are harmonizing their certification standards to match.
The GLOBALG.A.P. flagship standard is the Integrated Farm Assurance (IFA) standard which covers crops, livestock and aquaculture and emphasizes a progressive, holistic approach to farm certification.
