We are very pleased to announce that the BRC Food Safety Standard issue 8 is being added to the scope of GFSI recognition for BRC Global Standards after a successful assessment against version 7.2 of the GFSI Benchmarking Requirements.
For GFSI, continued collaboration with Certification Programme Owners as they update their standards and processes is key to our strategic purpose of harmonisation of food safety programmes. We were delighted that BRC Global Standards submitted the latest issue of their food safety standard for assessment, and at the same time extended their scope of recognition to include the Production of Feed.
"The Benchmarking of our standards by GFSI is an important added value to certificated sites because of the international customer recognition this brings," stated David Brackston Technical Director BRC GS. "Whenever we update our Standards, we are careful to ensure that this both covers existing benchmarking requirements and also has a view to the future with the introduction for example of clauses encouraging the development of food safety culture. We are delighted to have once again met GFSI Benchmarking Requirements for the new Standard."
GFSI congratulates BRC Global Standard on this new recognition and for their continual support of GFSI in driving best food safety management practices throughout the global supply chain.
