BRC Certificated Audits
2nd Party Due Diligence Audits
1st Party Internal Audits

The BRC Global Standard Food Issue 8 has been audited against since February 2019. The standard is updated approximately every 3 years. All BRC approval audits are carried out against this standard until the version is updated.

Standard inclusions are:

  • An added requirement for traceability through the food chain. This has been introduced primarily due to the horsemeat identified in the food chain

  • The adoption of requirements for Agents and Brokers

  • Additional requirements for packaging control

  • The addition of two new fundamental clauses - Management of Suppliers of Raw Materials &  Packaging and Labelling & Pack Control

 

There are a number of fundamental sections. Critical or major non-conformity raised against the banner statement of a fundamental section results in non-certification, suspension or withdrawal of certification.

Fundamental sections:

  • Senior Managment Commitment and continual improvement

  • HACCP

  • Internal Audit

  • Management of Suppliers of Raw  Materials and Packaging

  • Corrective Action

  • Traceability

  • Layout, Product Flow and Segregation

  • Housekeeping and Hygiene

  • Handling Requirements for Specific Materials

  • Control of Operations

  • Labelling and Pack Control

  • Training
