The Possibility to Register Other Programs in the GLOBALG.A.P. Database

Besides their GLOBALG.A.P. certification, many producers hold certificates of other programs. As of today, we provide producers he opportunity to show which other programs they are participating in our Database. This new function will enable producers to show more than 600 market participants, which additional efforts they are taking

How does it work?

  • Producers can inform their Certification Body/Trustee that they want them to register this additional information.
  • Currently we offer registration for the following programs: Bioland, Biopark, EU Organic, Fair for Life, Fair Trade, Gäa, Naturland, QS FIAS, Rainforest Alliance.
  • To ensure that the producer agrees to publish the additional information they shall fill in the Producer Declaration for Data Access form provided by GLOBALG.A.P. or a similar form provided by the Certification Body/Trustee. 
  • The Certification Body may 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).
  • As set in the Data Access Rules for Other Programs in the GLOBALG.A.P. Database, the information will be visible to all companies with the role “Market Participant”. Here you find a list of all companies with this role.
  • For that service, the producer will be charged the following service fees via its Certification Body/Trustee:
    • Option 1: 20 €
    • Option 2: 50 € per producer group and 2 € per producer group member
  • This fee applies only once - independent from the number of other programs registered.
  • The producer declares that he/she will inform the Certification Body/Trustee in case anything changes.
  • Due to technical constraints the validity of the registration of the other program is following a 1 year cycle and needs to be “renewed” after one year.

Please note that GLOBALG.A.P. does not take any responsibility of the correctness of the information, and no liability whatsoever is accepted for incorrect, incomplete or out-of-date information.

The list of other programs registered in the Database is not exhaustive. Please inform the customer support team (customer_support@globalga.org) if you want us to add a new program.
