What is BRC Global Standard?

In 1998, the British retail organisation, British Retail Consortium (BRC), decided to develop a common quality standard, "Global Standard for Food Safety" for the companies that supply goods to the retail market. BRC has also developed, among other things, "Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials" for packaging companies, including LABELCO A/S, and "Global Standard for Storage and Distribution" for storage and transport.

Who is behind BRC?

BRC is a consolidation of British retail businesses that together cover more than 90 percent of the British retail market. Members include Marks & Spencers, Tesco, Starbucks, WH Smidt, Harrods, Boots UK, Home Retali Group, Fortnum & Mason and many more.

The Standard

Besides requirements of HACCP, the Standard makes demands on, for example, the lay-out of the facility, hygiene rules, training and much more. Control of hygiene standards is necessary for the producers that manufacture packaging materials for food. During storage and transport it is also necessary to ensure that food safety is intact and that the quality of the food is not compromised. A significant part of the implementation of the BRC is the HACCP analyses. Through the HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) system, our company ensures continuous improvement of our procedures and products. In this way, our company ensures the highest quality and safety for our customers - food producers as well as all others. All clauses in the Standard have to be audited at every official audit, and non-conformities are assessed as "Critical", "Major" or "Minor". On the basis of the number of non-conformities the company receive, it is graded "A", "B", "C" or no certification. LABELCO A/S has the grade "A". Bureau Veritas, one of the most well-reputed certification authorities in Europe, has audited and certified LABELCO A/S.
