The GLOBALG.A.P. Integrity Program
With over 1400 trained inspectors and auditors working for more than 140 accredited certification bodies certifying over 400 products and more than 112,600 producers, spread across 100 plus countries in 5 continents, keeping the confidence of our stakeholders is our top priority. That’s why since 2008, GLOBALG.A.P. has followed an Integrity Program dedicated to strengthening and improving the certification process.
The Integrity Program is pioneering, the first of its kind in food certification, and is designed to ensure consistent delivery and implementation of the standard worldwide. It acts as a feedback mechanism that serves the ongoing improvement of the GLOBALG.A.P. System in all its aspects. And it promotes transparency and integrity throughout the entire G.A.P. harmonization process.
In short, it builds confidence and trust.
The Integrity Program is built on 2 key pillars that are interconnected on the levels of development, implementation and monitoring:
Our recent Achievements
- Qualified an international pool of GLOBALG.A.P. integrity assessors

Integrity is a major priority for GLOBALG.A.P. That's why we have integrated this concept into our processes and moved towards a more holistic approach. That is to say we have established a continuous improvement process - where the development, implementation and monitoring activities are interconnected:
