GAFTA develops the standard forms of contract on which it is estimated that 80% of the world’s trade in grain, rice and wheat is shipped. GAFTA members can also become members of GAFTA’s committees to ensure that these contracts remain current, party neutral and reflect trade practices.
GAFTA operates an international dispute resolution service for contractual disputes. Awards can be enforced in 149 countries under the New York Convention. GAFTA members receive a discounted fee for the service and access to the defaulters list of companies who have not complied with an award.
The GAFTA Trade Assurance Scheme (GTAS) is a HACCP-based scheme available to companies operating in the international grain and feed trade. GAFTA members can apply to be recognised as GAFTA Approved Analysts and Superintendents to be eligible to carry out work on GAFTA contracts.
GAFTA’s Trade Policy service represents members’ views to authorities by providing informed opinion on legislative and policy developments through the publication of regular material on the current grain market and updates on trade issues. GAFTA members can contribute to and influence GAFTA’s work on Policy.
Gafta offers members the opportunity to undertake training through distinct learning routes, either by attending face-to-face training in various locations worldwide through the Gafta Professional Development (GPD) or by enrolment to our Distance Learning Programme (DLP), which is a members-exclusive service.
