Programme Summary

The BRCGS Global Standard for Food Safety is a product and process certification standard known for compliance to industry best practices. BRCGS certification is an internationally recognised mark of food safety and quality. Certification is achieved by undertaking a third-party audit against Standard requirements by an accredited certification body (CB). BRCGS rates CBs on their technical performance and efficiency in customer service. FoodChain ID Certification is a highly rated CB providing accredited BRCGS certification globally.

The BRC Global Standard for Food Safety began in the UK to help the food industry meet legislative requirements of the EU General Product Safety Directive and the UK Food Safety Act. The Food Standard is a HACCP-based food safety and quality management system based on requirements specified in the GFSI Benchmarking Requirements document. Requirements are risk-based to fit individual operations and provide the necessary level of assurance.

BRCGS Food Safety Certification may be beneficial for:

  • Finished food manufacturers
  • Raw material and ingredient suppliers
  • Packers of primary products (e.g. fruit & vegetables)

BRCGS Food Safety Standard Issue 8 was published in August 2018.
