GLOBALG.A.P. Livestock Certification

The GLOBALG.A.P. Integrated Farm Assurance (IFA) Standard consists of General Rules and Control Points and Compliance Criteria (CPCC.)

The GLOBALG.A.P. IFA CPCC are modular-based consisting of:

  • The All Farm Base Module: This is the foundation of all sub-scopes and defines all the requirements that all producers must first comply with to gain certification.
  • The Scope Module: This defines clear criteria based on the different food production sectors. GLOBALG.A.P. covers 3 scopes: Crops, Livestock and Aquaculture. 
  • The Sub-scope Module: These CPCC cover all the requirements for a particular product or different aspect of the food production and supply chain.

The scopes (e.g. livestock) are automatically coupled to the sub-scopes that a producer or prodcuer group applies for.
For example, a poultry producer must comply with the All Farm Base, the Livestock scope module, and the Poultry CPCC to receive a GLOBALG.A.P. Poultry Standard Certificate.

Livestock producers are also required to source their compound feed from reliable suppliers. The GLOBALG.A.P. Compound Feed Standard helps livestock producers find GLOBALG.A.P. certified compound feed manufacturers.
