Dutch pig scheme IKB Nederland Varkens has successfully been re-benchmarked against GLOBALG.A.P. Integrated Farm Assurance standard. This scheme has been benchmarked as a resembling scheme what means that their G.A.P. requirements and scheme management rules have been found to conform with GLOBALG.A.P. system to a large extent, but leave some exceptions. For those producers who need recognition as equivalent the scheme owner De Groene Belangenbehartiger BV has developed a supplement. Certification is possible for individual producers only.
