*New for 2022* – CanadaGAP is also releasing a Corrective Action/Plan (CAP) Guide. This new document provides guidance for operations on how to correct non-conformances (either through corrective actions or corrective actions plans) that may occur during an audit. The CAP guide outlines some examples of potential non-conformances as well as possible corrective actions or plans. Please note the guide has examples only and is NOT an exhaustive list.

The CAP guide can help an operation determine what steps to take after receiving a non-conformance. Keep in mind that corrective actions and plans will differ due to a number of different circumstances (e.g., certification option, autofail vs loss of points, operational practices, seasonality, etc.). The CAP guide can be found on the CanadaGAP website at:
