Gafta (The Grain and Feed Trade Association) is the international Association representing the trade and supply of agricultural commodities, animal feed materials, pulses, rice, spices and general produce worldwide. The Gafta Standard is an independently audited scheme designed to maintain and improve the level of competence of activities related to the trade of agricultural commodities, animal feed materials, pulses, rice, spices and general produce worldwide.
It comprises three Codes of Practice:
• The Gafta Standard for Analysis and Testing
• The Gafta Standard for Fumigation
• The Gafta Standard
The Gafta Standard for Fumigation covers the management and operational procedures of the Fumigator (and his trained representatives) when carrying out the fumigation and degassing of agricultural commodities on a ship, in a store/silo or in freight containers in relation to food/feed safety. It details best practice procedures of the Fumigator within the scope of his responsibility, including the handing over of responsibility to the owner or custodian of the commodity when required. Certification to the Gafta Standard for Fumigation is a requirement for listing a company on the Gafta Approved Register of Fumigators. Being on the Approved Register enables a fumigation company to carry out its activities under Gafta contract terms.
