BRC/IoP Global Standard – Food Packaging and Other Packaging Materials (Czech Translation) – PDF
- British Retail Consortium (BRC)
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
The Packaging Standard is the benchmark for best practice across the packaging industry for the packaging of food and other non-food products.
This revised Standard has arisen out of extensive consultation between the British Retail Consortium (BRC), the Institute of Packaging (IoP), packaging suppliers, food manufacturers and third party certification bodies. The new revisions are essential for certification and compliance will help manufacturers to stay on retailers' supplier lists.
The new Standard came into force on 1st March 2005. Foreign language versions are also available in Chinese, German, and Swedish – see below.
Changes to the new Standard include:
clearly defined requirements leading to more concise interpretations
changes to reflect new legislation and best practice standards
an extensive protocol section
a clear definition of scope
extending the scope of the Standard to allow products other than food to be certified
Since its launch in 2001, the Standard is well on its way to becoming truly global. BRC registered certification bodies currently work in a number of countries, including the USA and China.
Significant benefits apply to retailers, suppliers and packaging producers include:
greater confidence in supply and compliance with legal requirements
reduced costs by the elimination of multi-audits
enhanced due diligence systems for all parties
clear and concise statements of best practice requirements
certification to a well-defined internationally recognised Standard
standardised industry approach
The Standard also covers Hazard and Risk Management, Technical Management System, Factory Standards, Contamination Control and Personnel.
