The BRC Global Standard for Food Safety was originally developed
by UK retailers in 1998 to enable their suppliers to be audited to
a single standard by third party Certification Bodies reducing
duplication of supplier audits.
The current Global Standard for Food Safety is internationally
recognised and approved by the Global Food Safety Initiative
(GFSI). It is a comprehensive Standard covering management
commitment, HACCP based food safety plans, food safety and quality
management systems, site standards, product and process control, as
well as personnel requirements.
BRC Certification is well recognised through the requirement
• a detailed audit report that is often
accepted in place of customer audits,
• stringent competency, qualification and
experience requirements for auditors,
• approval of accredited certification bodies,
• the rigorous and exhaustive management by BRC
of the Standard.
BRC Certification is required for export to many EU retailers
and is recognised under the Coles House-brand Supplier
requirements. Independent third party certification to the BRC
Global Standard for Food Safety provides food manufacturers a high
level of assurance that their products are safe, meet the quality
expectations of their customers and regulatory requirements.
