Note to AB list:

* These ABs are already active in GLOBALG.A.P. Accredition. Therefore the AB is in the IAF product MLA with Sub-scopes Level 4: GLOBALG.A.P. General Regulations and Level 5: GLOBALG.A.P. Integrated Farm Assurance Control Points and Compliance Criteria.

** These ABs are not yet active in GLOBALG.A.P. Accreditation. Therefore the AB is not yet in the IAF product MLA with Sub-scopes Level 4 and Level 5 for GLOBALG.A.P. Integrated Farm Assurance but they can be chosen by a CB.
