Revision towards V6 in 2021

GLOBALG.A.P. has embarked on its most comprehensive revision of standards ever, and you should be part of it!

The aim of V6 will be 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.

The Technical Committees and Focus Groups have started with the evaluation of the current V5 and approved structural changes to simplify the standards. They will continue their work and prepare the drafts for the first official public consultation during May/June 2020.

There will be a second public consultation period from mid-November to mid-January 2021, and a period where you can participate in field trials to evaluate the auditability of the standard. In addition, we are planning several events around the globe to reach as many as possible stakeholders to give input for the development of not only an applicable standard for producers and their customers but also a standard that adds value to its users.
