Quality Assurance and Sustainability Schemes

Singapore Good Agricultural Practice (SG GAP)


SFA encourages local farms to voluntarily adopt Singapore Good Agricultural Practice (SG GAP) standard as a quality assurance system in food production to assure consumes quality and traceable local farm produces.

Farms that comply and meet the requirements of SG GAP standard will be awarded the SG GAP certification by Singapore Food Agency.

GAP Standards

GAP is widely adopted worldwide, and Singapore encourages the adoption of SG GAP. In collaboration with agritech industry players (farm operators, technology providers and buyers), academic and research institutes, SAFEF and government agencies, SFA developed a series of SG GAP standards for different farm commodities under the EnterpriseSG - Singapore Standardisation Programme. Three SG GAP standards have been developed for the key farming operations in Singapore, namely vegetables, seafood and egg farms, and these are:

·       Singapore Standard (SS) 675: 2021 Specification for good agriculture practice 

·       SS 670: 2021 Specification for good aquaculture practice 

·       SS 676: 2021 Specification for good animal husbandry practice for layer farms 


The SG GAP are formulated to complement emerging and advanced farming systems and technologies adopted and to promote responsible farming in high productive farms and address market demand for high quality and traceable farm produces in Singapore. These SG GAP provide guidance to local farms on a holistic approach of farm management in the areas of food safety, produce quality, environmental management, and workers health, safety, and welfare. By following these SG GAP which are aligned to regional ASEAN GAP and international standards, local farms can be recognised to adopt best practices for quality assurance in agriculture, aquaculture and egg production while protecting the farm environment.


Singapore Standard – SS675: 2021 Specification for Good Agriculture Practice

The SS675 caters to all indoor and outdoor agriculture systems in Singapore for vegetables, fruits, and herbs farming. It specifies best practices from pre-production to cultivation, harvesting and postharvest handling prior to delivery. The SS675 has superseded the GAP-VF standard.

Singapore Standard – SS670: 2021 Specification for Good Aquaculture Practice

The SS670 caters to various aquaculture systems in Singapore, ranging from open-cage farming and pond farming to closed containment farming systems for fish, crustaceans, and molluscs. It specifies best practices from pre-production to production, harvesting and post-harvesting prior to delivery. The SS670 has superseded the GAP-FF standard.

Singapore Standard – SS676: 2021 Specification for Good Animal Husbandry Practice for Layer Farms

The SS676 caters to chicken layer and quail layer farms. It specifies best practices to ensure the production of safe and high-quality produce during all phases of farm operations, including pre-production (e.g. hatchery, breeder stock and pullet), production (e.g. laying stages), egg collection, and post-production (e.g. management of spent birds, etc.), while minimising impact to the environment and upholding the welfare of animals. The SS676 has superseded the SQES standard.


Certification Logo


SG GAP-certified farms are awarded with the two-star badge or SG GAP certification mark after attaining the SG GAP certification. This certification mark is a mark of quality assurance, and farmers can use it to distinguish their produce from others in the market.

Food service providers/ operators and retailers will also have the option to source for quality produce from SG GAP-certified farms. Product traceability, a feature of the certification system, further assures consumers that the produce is from reliable sources.
