Integrated Farm Assistance (IFA)
Integrated Farm Assurance (IFA) is the full GLOBALG.A.P. certification program and covers all agriculture, aquaculture, livestock, and horticulture production. This certification also examines other aspects of food production and the supply chain, including chain of custody and compound feed manufacturing. IFA is revised every four years and is currently in version 5.2 (non-GFSI) and 5.3 (GFSI-approved).
IFA Version 6 is currently in development by GLOBALG.A.P. – an update touted as its most comprehensive standard revision process ever. The interim final version of the new revision is anticipated to be published in September 2021, with full final publication in early 2022. PJRFSI will be keeping a close eye out for the latest news on this new version; stay tuned for important updates!
