Self Assessment Checklist for Labor Standards on Farms

This checklist is designed as a tool to help farmers run through the AJP labor standards (on the left) to see if they are already in compliance and to identify the areas they may need to work on prior to seeking certification to the AJP standards. This does not include standards regarding farmer responsibilities to certified buyers. Examples of the types of documentation that are likely to demonstrate compliance with the standards are listed on the right; however, adequacy of documentation is ultimately up to the certifier (who may request additional documentation). All standards must be verified by workers during internal and external audits also. AJP farmer toolkit provides a template for many of the policies to be documented.
