Validation Service

The smart way to issue certificates

About Validation Service

Validation Service is a tool that GLOBALG.A.P. approved certification bodies use to create and issue certificates and letters of conformance for GLOBALG.A.P. standards and add-ons. The system was built in 2020 and is currently in use for a limited selection of standards. It is being further developed for our new era of smart farm assurance solutions and will eventually become a mandatory part of the certification process.


Integrity building, timesaving

Validation Service was created to allow certification bodies to generate certificates based on the audit data submitted in Audit Online Hub – the record-keeping system used by GLOBALG.A.P. approved certification bodies.


Generate trusted, uniform certificates and letters of conformance in just a few clicks!


The next GLOBALG.A.P. farm assurance products to be integrated into Audit Online Hub and Validation Service are:

  • IFA v6 Smart
