[Ipopt] optimality of solution

I have solved a nonconvex EPEC (equilibrium model
with equilibrium constraints) model with Ipopt, using two modeling
approaches involving:
1- an NLP approach, where the problem is reformulated as a set of nonlinear
2- a diagonalization approach where the problem is reformulated as a set of
MPECs (mathematical problem with equilibrium constraints)

I get the same solution from these different approaches which supports the
optimality of the solution.
Is there any other way to ensure that the solution is indeed optimal not
a saddle point or a local maximum? (e.g by using IPOPT options,
or initial point manipulations)

thank you in advance,
