New Issue 8 BRC FOOD SAFETY QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM. This is an ideal package for Food Manufacturers looking to meet British Retail Consortium Global Standard for Food Safety 2018 (Issue 8).
As well as being updated in 2018 this BRC Food Safety Quality Management System Package includes an Implementation Workbook and a User Start Up Guide.
As major retailers seek to ensure the integrity of their products throughout the entire food supply chain they are looking to suppliers to have 3rd party certification to an approved GFSI food safety-related certification scheme.
The Global Food Safety Initiative drives continuous improvement of food safety management systems to ensure confidence in the delivery of safe food to consumers worldwide.
A food safety management scheme is 'recognised' by GFSI when all of its criteria are considered to be equivalent to the requirements set out in the GFSI Guidance Document. BRC Global Standard for Food Safety is widely recognized as one of the front running standards approved by GFSI.
There are over 26,000 suppliers certified to BRC Standards in 130 countries throughout the world.
Many UK, North American and European retailers and brand owners specifically require suppliers to have gained certification to the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety.
This package has been written in compliance with the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety Issue 8 which was published on 1st August 2018 and will be effective from February 2019.
The new Standard continues to require core elements which are covered extensively in this package:
This BRC Food Safety & Quality Management System Implementation Package 2018 includes comprehensive document templates which cover these core elements and are aligned with the clauses of the Standard for ease of implementation.
BRC Global Standard for Food Safety Issue 8 has put an emphasis on encouraging sites to put systems in place to develop a product safety culture, the requirement for a confidential reporting system, additional requirements for environmental monitoring, additional requirements for security and food defence and additional requirements for the control of product labelling.
For clarity the requirements for high-risk, high-care and ambient high-care production risk zones have been moved to a separate section.
