The BRC Global Standard was developed by the British Retail Consortium in co-operation with food manufacturers, certification bodies and UKAS (The United Kingdom Accreditation Service). The standard was developed to assist purchasers of food products in their legal obligations, and in the protection of the consumer, by providing a common basis for the certification of companies packing and processing food and beverage products.
The BRC Global Standard is an approved brand-marked standard to the Global Safety Initiative, providing international recognition for the standard, and the reports and certificates generated by accredited certification bodies using this standard.
