GlobalG.A.P. describes to work on Good Agricultural Practices (G.A.P.). That means that the farm has to keep lots of parameteres e.g. for usage of pesticides, fungicides or treating workers. Every year the GLOBAL G.A.P.-Certificate has to be renewed by an audit. The audits will be done by Certification Bodies, authorized by the GLOBALG.A.P.-Organization.
G.R.A.S.P. is an add on to GLOBALG.A.P. and stands for Global Risk Assessment on Social Practice. Focused on the working people it is developed to assess social practices on the farm, addressing specific aspects of workers’ health, safety and welfare. It also will be audited by the Certification Bodies which do the GLOBALG.A.P.-Audits.
