BRC Global Standard for Consumer Products (German): Issue 3

Print Version

British Retail Consortium (BRC)
TSO (The Stationery Office)

The BRC Global Standard for Consumer Products (Issue 3) is a new BRC Global Standard, replacing Consumer Products Issues 2 and 2a. There are substantial revisions and updates to the content of Consumer Products Issue 3 to take into account the increasingly complex and prescriptive safety requirements in the global consumer products market.

It is a requirement that all suppliers undergoing a BRC Consumer Products audit have an official, authorised copy of this Standard.

The scope of Consumer Products, Issue 3 covers a wide range of non-food products in the global marketplace; including formulated products such as shampoos, paints and cosmetics, fabricated items like televisions and toys, electrical goods., furniture and textiles.

Content revisions include the re-definition of consumer products into three, more clearly specified Product Groups, depending on the level of potential risk attributable to the product. The Standard also outlines an amended frequency of audits, including an audit visit every year following certification.

Content includes the introduction of a grading system, defined by the number and severity of non conformities found. 'Fundamental' clauses have been added for the most important safety issues. Failure to meet a fundamental clause may result in failure to obtain certification or suspension of an existing certificate.

Key features:

  • A how to get started section that covers everything you need to know to achieve BRC certification

  • Redefinition of products into three clear groups

  • A new grading system for certificated sites

  • Revised frequency of audits

  • Inclusion of 'Fundamentals' for the most important issues

  • Enhancement of the section on product conformity measures

  • Information to help with gaining certification

  • Improved layout - product groups shaded differently for clarity.
