Abstract

The number of valid CHINAGAP certifications is counted at 410 on July 14, 2010, which range from crops to livestock and aquaculture. CHINAGAP covers all of mainland China except Qinghai province. The fruit, vegetables and combinable crops of CHINAGAP have completed the entire benchmarking procedure, and are now fully recognized as GLOBALGAP equivalent. This article first classifies the certified companies according to region, the certification level, and the certification section and item, and then discusses the current state of CHINAGAP certification. In the second issue clarified by the article the export promotion function of the CHINAGAP is proven by two correlation coefficients. One is calculated with the money of agricultural products exported and the number of CHINAGAP certifications by region. While the other is calculated with the amount of agricultural products exported and the number of CHINAGAP certifications by the section and the item. Finally the author analyzes the export promotion function of CHINAGAP by the case of selected certification companies in Shanghai.
