5 Steps to Get Certified

1 Download the relevant GLOBALG.A.P. standard documents from our document center or follow the link on the relevant standard page (see our quick links on the right).

2 Compare offers from the certification bodies in your country, register with the one you choose, and get your GLOBALG.A.P. Number (GGN). Find a full list of GLOBALG.A.P. approved certification bodies here.

3 Carry out a self-assessment using the checklist and correct all the points you don’t comply with. A registered trainer for GLOBALG.A.P. standards, who is a trained and examined expert, can provide you with valuable assistance during this self-assessment and your inspection and/or audit preparations.

4 Arrange an appointment with your GLOBALG.A.P. approved certification body. An inspector/auditor will then conduct the first on-site inspection/audit.

5 Once you successfully comply with the standard’s requirements, you will receive a GLOBALG.A.P. certificate for the relevant version and scope. The certificate is valid for one year.
