BIPRO - The Brand Integrity Program

BIPRO detects any improper use of the GLOBALG.A.P. brand logo as well as any financial and contractual issues, non-authorized certification bodies and fraudulent certification. 

BIPRO relies on one of the key features of the GLOBALG.A.P. Database: the online certificate validation tool, which is now used daily by our retailers and traders.

The GLOBALG.A.P. Database is a key tool of the Integrity Program. It indexes all certified producers worldwide including all their relevant product and certification information and functions by assigning a unique 13-digit identity to each registered producer using a GLOBALG.A.P. Number (GGN). Checking the GGN using the online certificate validation tool confirms the status of the producers and the validity of their certificates.

Any certificate not indexed in the publicly available search site is considered immediately invalid. The tool secures instant and complete accessibility of registration and status data of every producer and product for all options to make the standard transparent.
