Consistency & Customer Service

We offer certification to the BRC Global Standards for Food Safety, Packaging Materials, Storage and Distribution, Agents and Brokers, Plant Based, Start!, Ethical Trading and Gluten Free. These standards help promote consistency across the supply chain and cover critical topics such as HACCP system, factory environment, process control, quality management system, product control, and personnel.

BRCGS is often a good fit for companies new to certification audits, because the standards are very descriptive in their expectations and provide clear direction for what is needed for each written program.

BRCGS Certification for Agents & Brokers

Agents and Brokers (non-manufacturing traders) who buy, sell, or facilitate the trade of products provide a critical link in the movement and trade of products. This standard has been developed to provide a framework for managing product safety, quality, and legality for these non-manufacturing businesses in the food and packaging industries.

The BRCGS Certification Process

1. Pre-assessment

An optional audit used to assess the level of a system’s compliance against the BRCGS Global Standard.

3. Re-certification Audit

This audit verifies continued effectiveness of a facility’s system and reviews past performance over the period of the certification. The frequency is either 6 or 12 months and is related to the grade shown on the certificate. See individual Standards for details.

2. Certification

A combination document/facility audit with grades dependent on the number and nature of non-conformances raised and whether the audit was announced or unannounced.

4. Unannounced Audit

The facility will not be informed of the audit date and the site tour will need to begin within 30 minutes of arrival. Companies can choose to have every audit be unannounced, and this will be indicated on the certificate with a +, therefore the top grade becomes AA+.
