Module 10 GlobalG.A.P. Chain of Custody
Publish Date: 11 April 2023
The aim of this module is to manage the risk of accidental or deliberate misidentification or mixing of GLOBALG.A.P certificated and non-certificated products.
The module provides customers with traceability concerns a formal check for chain of custody, mitigating the risk of certification fraud through verification, product identification and segregation.
It follows the principles of a GLOBALG.A.P. Chain of Custody audit. It makes use of traceability records to identify the supply chain companies who take legal ownership of or physical control over a certified product and to helping establish clear linkage between the initial certified production process (producer(s)) and the final product.
Organisations within the scope of certification to the BRCGS Global Standard Food Safety that take legal ownership and/or physical control of a GLOBALG.A.P. certified product in the supply chain fall within the scope of this module.
Where a company has a BRCGS Global Standard Food Safety audit, this module replaces the need for them to be audited against the full separate GLOBALG.A.P. Chain of Custody standard.
