A new version for the GlobalGap IFA is now available: it is version 5.2 and it will enter into force on 1 August 2019.
According to the new version, the standard has not been substantially modified.

The informative questionnaire for the GlobalGap standard was reviewed as well and it was renamed QUAREGLO 07-2019. It will come into force on 1 July 2019.

All the changes can be read at www.globalgap.org, while the main technical updates and transposal methods are summed up in the attached technical note.
