Extending the scope of your GLOBALG.A.P. IFA approval

GLOBALG.A.P. Certification Bodies (CB) that have already been approved for one or several scopes or standards can extend the scope of their License and Certification Agreement (LCA) with GLOBALG.A.P. to offer certification for additional IFA standards, scopes and sub-scopes. Applications for extension follow similar rules as the initial application for approval to guarantee a high level of quality and integrity.

5 Steps for GLOBALG.A.P. Approved CBs to Apply for a Scope or a Sub-Scope Extension

1. Read the CB requirements in the IFA General Regulations Part III point 2.2 and sign up for the new scope/sub-scope in our Certification Body Extranet.
2. Apply for accreditation for the new scope/sub-scope. To do this, contact your Accreditation Body (AB) and request an AB confirmation letter.
3. Finalize your application package and send it to the CB Approval Team via e-mail.
4. Pay the applicable fees according to the GLOBALG.A.P. fee table when you receive an invoice from the GLOBALG.A.P. Secretariat.
5. Once your application has been approved, the new scope/sub-scope will be added here.

If you wish to apply for an Add-On or non-IFA standard, please contact the CB Approval Team directly for additional information.
