WORLD CONSULTATION TOUR 2020

New Version of the Integrated Farm Assurance Standard – Draft versions now available!

GLOBALG.A.P. is embarking on its most comprehensive standard revision process ever, and you should be part of it!
Version 6 of the Integrated Farm Assurance (IFA) standard aims to offer a flexible and simplified certification experience, maximizing the ever-growing capabilities for digitalization in the auditing and certification processes, and including more elements of customized, science-based risk assessments. Now is your chance to have your say on version 6 that will be published in 2021.

As always when working on a new standard, GLOBALG.A.P. is calling for your input. Alongside the usual public consultation periods (round one from May until June 2020 and round two from November 2020 until January 2021) where you can submit written feedback in direct relation to draft versions, GLOBALG.A.P. is also offering another feedback format.

The World Consultation Tour 2020 is a series of meetings open to all stakeholders and organized in close cooperation with our technical committees and national technical working groups as well as universities. Each World Consultation Tour meeting will take the form of a 90-minute online round table discussion, free of charge, and moderated by our GLOBALG.A.P. experts.

To allow us to address the smaller details, each World Consultation Tour meeting will focus on different scopes and topics. Anyone can take part. Simply choose the meeting applicable to your interests and register accordingly.

The more input we receive from you, our growers and network, the more widely we can discuss changes and the better we can design version 6 to meet your needs. The World Consultation Tour specifically offers the advantage of communication in real time, as an open dialogue between you and GLOBALG.A.P.

Below you can find a complete list of all the available dates and meetings. Make sure to choose the scope, target group (producer, certification body, public etc.), and language relevant for you and register using the link included. Then all you need to do is make sure you have a good internet connection and your feedback notes to hand.
Discussions will be based on the first draft for public consultation (documents can be found here) so please take a look at this in advance.

Registration is now open, and we expect places to fill up quickly. Register now to secure your place in the WorldConsultationTour2020

Do not hesitate to contact us at event@globalgap.org with your questions.

Current Documents for Public Consultation

The GLOBALG.A.P. technical committees and focus groups have evaluated the current version (v5) and approved structural changes to simplify the standard. With these results, the first draft for public consultation was published for the first official public consultation period from May to July 2020. The technical experts are currently working on the incorporation of feedback to publish the second draft for public consultation in October for the second public consultation period from mid-November 2020 to mid-January 2021, and later a period during which you can participate in field trials to evaluate the standard’s auditability.

Public consultation on version 6 of the IFA standard is based on documents developed by the GLOBALG.A.P. technical committees and focus groups, and supported by all stakeholder input during the World Consultation Tour webinars and written feedback received via e-mail to publiccomments@globalgap.org

The first period of public consultation on standard documents and control points and compliance criteria took place between May and July 2020. Results are now feeding into the second draft, which will be openly consulted between September and November 2020. Currently, documents on general regulations, the data driven approach and integrated pest management are open for commenting and the subject of discussion in World Consultation Tour events.

In addition to these defined public consultation periods and the permanent option for written feedback, we are conducting multiple online events in the context of our World Consultation Tour, where we hope to reach as many stakeholders as possible. This virtual tour allows direct communication between GLOBALG.A.P. experts and various stakeholders via roundtable discussions. Learn more about participation in our World Consultation Tour here.

Keep an eye out for the events and announcements of the public consultation periods.
We look forward to your comments and a constructive discussion on how we can improve the standard!
