There are 5 Technical Committees: Crops, Aquaculture, Livestock, GRASP and Systems & Rules.

The committees’ scopes are set in the Terms of Reference and they will work on their goals for the duration of the Integrated Farm Assurance standard Version 5. After 4 years, elections will take place again.

The GLOBALG.A.P. Secretariat has been looking at a new and innovative way of rewarding our stakeholders for their contribution to the improvement and sustainability of GLOBALG.A.P. The GLOBALG.A.P. Rewards for Industry Program (GRIP) recognizes the contribution of stakeholders in two-fold: firstly with Status Points where individuals and their companies are rewarded for their time contribution and secondly, with redeemable Rewards Points.
