GLOBALG.A.P.
BENCHMARKING

Under the framework of GLOBALG.A.P. benchmarking, GLOBALG.A.P. recognizes national/local G.A.P. certification systems in order to simplify the certification process for producers and decrease unnecessary costs and duplication of assessments.

Core activity of the GLOBALG.A.P. benchmarking process: Determining the applicant certification system’s level of equivalence with GLOBALG.A.P. by identification of convergences and divergences between the applicant certification system and GLOBALG.A.P. standards.
