We rely on independent third-party certification. Our certificates are issued by GLOBALG.A.P. approved certification bodies (CBs), who conduct GLOBALG.A.P. audits on farms and update our global online database.
These accredited certification bodies issue GLOBALG.A.P. Certificates to producers who have successfully implemented the GLOBALG.A.P. Standard.
We work with 160 independent and accredited CBs to carry out GLOBALG.A.P. Certification worldwide. These CBs conduct both announced and unannounced onsite farm inspections and audits throughout the year.
CBs can only be accredited by accreditation bodies (ABs) that have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with GLOBALG.A.P. See here the list of recognized Accreditation Bodies.
