Global Online PGS Database

This database is the most comprehensive and up-to-date collection on Participatory Guarantee Systems available online. It offers a list of worldwide PGS initiatives and the possibility for these to display and share information. PGS initiatives that have obtained official IFOAM PGS Recognition are listed separately.

Click on the name of a PGS initiative listed below to learn more about its structure and activities.

PGS initiatives are encouraged to submit their Self-Evaluation Form and content, documents or pictures to the IFOAM PGS Team: pgs [at] . 

Are you involved or aware of a PGS that is not yet listed in this Database? Please share your knowledge by filling in the form you will find here.

* PGS initiatives that have received government accreditation obtain IFOAM PGS Recognition, regardless whether they are IFOAM Affiliate. The use of the IFOAM PGS logo is, however, conditioned to IFOAM membership.

** PGS Networks include several PGS initiatives that are somehow linked through common activities, procedures or the use of a common standard. They include - apart from fully operational PGS networks that are implementing functional certification systems to certify their producers - PGS that are still under development and might not yet have functional PGS procedures in place. The PGS network as a whole cannot apply for IFOAM PGS Recognition, but individual PGS initiatives that are involved in the PGS Network can.

*** PGS Initiatives not Officially Recognized by IFOAM include fully operational PGS initiatives that are implementing functional certification systems to certify their producers, as well as PGS that are still under development and might not yet have functional PGS procedures in place. Only PGS initiatives recognized by IFOAM have gone through a formal assessment by IFOAM; for other PGS initiatives listed in this database, IFOAM does not take responsibility for the PGS “nature” or the accuracy of information provided.
