The future of hemp starts with you. 

Establishing a higher standard across the industry requires accountability and collaboration at every step of the way. 


Recognizing the demand for a comprehensive, and transparent tool to verify compliance with best practice implementation, GAPC developed the certification program. GAPC’s certification program will increase transparency and foster an environment that promotes sustainability, safety, compliance, profitability, and competition.



Get Started with GAP Connections

Reaching a higher standard begins with your choice to become a GAPC Grower Member and learn about good agricultural practices. From there, you can choose to become a GAPC Certified Grower Member and make a commitment to implement GAPC Hemp Certification Standards

The 2024 GAPC Hemp Certification Compliance Guide contains the detailed listing of GAP Connections (GAPC) Certification Standards, Certification questions, verification methods used during monitoring activities to verify responses to questions, and remediation processes if necessary.

One visit...two logos. If a GAPC Hemp Grower Member achieves GAPC Hemp Certification they can apply for the U.S. Hemp Authority Certified logo without going through another visit. Learn more about the GAPC Hemp Certification process and reciprocity with US Hemp Authority by viewing a webinar conducted by GAPC and USHA.
