Environmental Management Module - Good Agricultural Practices for Production of Fresh Fruits and Vegetables in ASEAN Countries
ASEAN GAP is a standard for good agricultural practices to control hazards during the production, harvesting and postharvest handling
of fresh fruit and vegetables in the ASEAN Member States. ASEAN GAP is divided into four modules – 1. Food safety, 2. Environmental
management, 3. Worker health, safety and welfare and 4. Produce quality.
ASEAN GAP has been developed to enhance the harmonisation of GAP programs amongst ASEAN Member States. It covers the production,
harvesting and postharvest handling of fresh fruit and vegetables on farm and postharvest handling in locations where produce is packed for sale.
This interpretive guide was designed to assist producers, packers, supply chain businesses, trainers, government representatives and others to understand the practices required for implementing the Environmental Management Module of ASEAN GAP. It provides guidance on “what has to be done” to implement the required practices. Separate interpretive guides are available for the other ASEAN GAP modules.
ASEAN GAP may be used for all types of productions systems but it is not a standard for certification of organic products or GMO free products.
