A new service launched in September makes data accessible on participating supplier management platforms.  

Public Bookmarking API  

The goal of the Public Bookmarking API (Application Programming Interface) is to make public information from the GLOBALG.A.P. database available to as many users as possible as easily as possible. Thanks to an API connection, key supply chain actors such as traders, cooperatives, and producer organizations can verify the accuracy and validity of GLOBALG.A.P. certificates on participating supplier management platforms directly.  

In an age of increasing digitalization and data sharing needs, the Public Bookmarking API simplifies the flow of data for supply chains and gives stakeholders a single, reliable source for key information, be it certificate data or conformity information.  

GLOBALG.A.P. database 

The GLOBALG.A.P. database is an internet-based platform for worldwide certification management and related services. It stores and links the assessment and certification data from certified production processes. One of the most important features of the GLOBALG.A.P. database is the certificate validation tool, which is now used daily by retailers and traders. To ensure transparent standards, the system secures instant access to registration and certificate status data for every producer and product according to GLOBALG.A.P.’s data access rules.  

First platform connection 

AgriPlace has become the first supply chain management platform to connect with the Public Bookmarking API. AgriPlace users are now able to validate GLOBALG.A.P. certificates for IFA, CoC, and more on the AgriPlace platform.
