5 Steps to Get Certified

  1. Download the relevant GLOBALG.A.P. Standard Documents and Checklists from our document center or follow the link on the relevant standard page (see for Quicklinks 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. Here a GLOBALG.A.P. Licensed Farm Assurer, who is a trained and approved consultant, can provide you with valuable assistance during your audit preparations. Find a full list of GLOBALG.A.P. Licensed Farm Assurers here.
  4. Arrange an appointment with your GLOBALG.A.P. approved certification body. An inspector will then conduct the first on-site inspection.
  5. Once you successfully comply with the standard’s requirements, you will receive a GLOBALG.A.P. Integrated Farm Assurance Standard certificate for the relevant Version and Scope which is valid for one year.
