New GlobalGAP interpretation guidelines for NL and BE

A National Interpretation Guideline (NIG) is a document that provides guidance on how to implement GlobalGAP Control Points and Compliance Criteria at a national level. Developed by a National Technical Working Group, this guideline goes through a transparent approval procedure and, once approved, becomes a normative GlobalGAP document.

This means that all the certification bodies working in the respective country must include this guideline within their certification procedures and inform all their customers about the NIG. Producers are given 3 months to implement the requirements in line with the NIG. And the accreditation bodies must ensure that all the accredited certification bodies have adopted the NIG in their auditing and certification activities.

The first two National Interpretation Guidelines for Version 5 (Fruit and Vegetables) were published on the GlobalGAP website:
