In December 2022, GLOBALG.A.P. reviewed and published the GLOBALG.A.P. Chain of Custody assessment guidelines.

You can download the updated certification standard from the GLOBALG.A.P. website.

1.7 management structure           5.1 GGN-labelled products

This means that effective 1 June 2023, MPS-ECAS will be performing audits in accordance with the updated GLOBALG.A.P. Chain of Custody Certification Standard version 6.1.
It is therefore important that participants conduct their internal audits compliant with Chain of Custody Certification Standard version 6.1.
