We rely on independent third-party certification. Our certificates are issued by GLOBALG.A.P. approved certification bodies (CBs), which conduct inspections and audits against the GLOBALG.A.P. standards and update our global online database. Producers who have successfully implemented a GLOBALG.A.P. standard are awarded certification.
We work with more than 160 independent and approved CBs to carry out GLOBALG.A.P. certification worldwide. These CBs conduct both announced and unannounced farm inspections and audits throughout the year.
Certification bodies seeking GLOBALG.A.P. approval must be accredited by accreditation bodies that have signed a memorandum of understanding with GLOBALG.A.P. See the list of recognized accreditation bodies here.
