Obtaining certification will help satisfy your customers’ expectations by demonstrating the plans, programs and systems that the standard demands:

  • A Hazard and Risk Management System to manage risks by following a step-by-step approach
  • Senior management commitment to provide sufficient resources to achieve the standard
  • A quality management system that details the organizational and managerial policies needed to provide a framework to achieve the standard
  • A series of pre-requisite programs dealing with the basic environmental and operational conditions needed for the production of safe and hygienic packaging and controlling the generic hazards covered by good manufacturing and good hygiene practices

Why choose BRC/IOP Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials certification?

The BRC standard is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), a program that aims to harmonize international food safety related standards with the support of the world’s top retailers, food and packaging manufacturers.
