Entering other programs
Besides their GLOBALG.A.P. certification many producers hold certificates of other programs.
It is possible to register this additional information in the GLOBALG.A.P. Database. Producers have to inform their certification body that they wish to register this information in the GLOBALG.A.P. Database. The certification Body can also upload a document (audit report, certification document, corrective actions report, non-conformity report or other documents) in several document formats (Excel, CSV, PDF, Word, PPT). The information will be visible to all companies with the role “market participant”(e.g. retailers, suppliers and participants of the supply chain).
Entering of the other programs' certificates is similar to the IFA certification.
