Abstract

Sub-Theme 4 | Implications of the Introduction of GAP System for the Safety Management of Agri-food





1. Analysis of Reasons for the Status Quo



① Lack of Understanding among Participating Farmers and Market Shortage for GAP Certified Agri-food

② Slowdown in the Administrative Process due to the Diverse Administrative Organizational Bodies

③ Weak Certification Authority and Lack of Support System

④ Difficulty in GAP Information System Management

⑤ Facility in Compliance with GAP Certification Criteria and Difficulty Installing Equipment

⑥ Lack of Price Differentiation in the GAP System

⑦ Low Awareness of GAP System



 


2. Applicability of the Korean GAP System to Other Developing Countries



In 2003, when the GAP pilot project was first implemented in Korea, the most critical obstacle was how to make farmers understand the important of sanitary management. The GAP system was applied as a measure to raise the safety of agri-food, as well as the important of safety. Experts predict this education of the safety concept to be the bigger barrier for developing countries–more so than it was even in Korea.



Physically, to apply the GAP system to the field and obtain the desired level of effectiveness, the size and basis of the agricultural market should reach a certain level prior to the government’s involvement and management or active participation of farmers. Sufficient budgeting and allocation of administrative power for active operation are necessities for successful dispersion of the GAP system. Based on a review and analysis of the Korean cases, when developing countries introduce the GAP system, a thorough analysis its own agricultural market would lead to a more successful introduction. If developing countries could introduce GAP in accordance with market opening through the FTA, GAP certification could be a remarkable tool to guarantee the differentiation and quality of products in the international market.
