It includes your name, the licensed Farm Assurer company, the approved scope(s), and the individual Farm Assurer ID number. This ID number is unique for every Farm Assurer and identifies them as an official GLOBALG.A.P. approved Farm Assurer. In order to prove validity, you will be sent a new sticker each year with which you can update your certificate.
In addition, you will also receive a Farm Assurer ID Card each year, which can be used to demonstrate your membership to the program to potential customers.
