British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global Standard

The British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global Standard for Food Safety Issue 7 has been developed to specify the food safety, quality and operational criteria required to be in place within a food manufacturing organization to fulfil obligations with regard to legal compliance and protection of the consumer. The format and content of the Standard is designed to allow an assessment of a company’s premises, operational systems and procedures by a competent third party, the certification body, against the requirements of the Standard.

The latest issue of this BRC Global Standard focuses on:

  • ensuring consistency of the audit process
  • providing a Standard that is flexible enough to allow extra voluntary modules to reduce the audit burden
  • encouraging systems to reduce exposure to fraud
  • promoting greater transparency and traceability in the supply chain
  • encouraging adoption of the Standard in small sites and facilities where processes are still in development

Benefits of Implementing BRC Global Standard for Food

  • Allows organizations to demonstrate their commitment to food safety
  • Enables communication about food safety hazards within the organization and food supply chain
  • Ability to show control of identified food hazards
  • Ability for continual improvement of the systems
  • Preventive approach to reduce loss or rejects
