Many producers of fruit and vegetables (FV) and/or flowers and ornamentals (FO) also grow and sell propagation material for FV and FO. GLOBALG.A.P. has therefore incorporated Plant Propagation Material (PPM) – Best Practices for Nurseries into the IFA standard as a sub-scope.
Implementation for PPM certification includes compliance with the All Farm Base (AF), the Crops Base (CB), and the Plant Propagation Material (PPM) modules.
The IFA standard for Plant Propagation Material covers site and soil management, substrates, propagation, propagation facilities, workers’ health, safety. and welfare, as well as trading terms and conditions.

The control points and compliance criteria (CPCC) list everything covered by the standard you are applying for and gives you additional guidelines for fulfilling the requirements.
The general regulations and crops rules define how the certification process works and list the requirements for quality management systems and related issues.
The national interpretation guideline (NIG) clarifies how the CPCC have been adapted in a specific country. Please check if there is a NIG for your country. If there is, you are required to use it.
