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.
