Standard for Food Safety.

Meeting the requirements of The BRC Global
Standard for Food Safety demonstrates
a company’s competence in maintaining product
safety, quality and integrity. The Global Standard for
Food Safety has been supported by major retailers
and manufacturers in over eighty countries.
To help companies interpret the requirements of the
Standard, the BRC has produced this
Guideline. Global Standard for Food Safety
Interpretation Guideline discusses the principles
behind each of the requirements clause by clause,
assisting companies to effective implementation.
This Interpretation Guideline also explains how to
prepare for a BRC audit, what to expect during the
audit and what actions are required following an
audit and to maintain certification.
This title is available in both hard copy or, if you
would prefer immediate access, as a downloadable
pdf. Please see the attached order form for details.
The Interpretation Guideline is also available as
part of packs that have been compiled to offer a
comprehensive user guide to the Global Standard
for Food Safety or the Global Standard for Consumer
Products. Available in both print and PDF formats,
these packs offer savings on purchasing the titles
individually. Some of these packs are listed on the

Training and Certification
‘The Standard on its own is basically a book.
It is the BRC training courses and the technical
competency of the suppliers that bring that book
to life and ensure that the standards required are
actually implemented on the production floor.’
Dr Geoff Spriegel, BRC Director of Global Standards and Technical Services
More and more retailers and producers worldwide are making certification against a BRC
Standard a condition of trade for their suppliers. BRC training courses are a vital tool for
suppliers who wish to achieve and maintain BRC certification.
How can BRC training help you achieve certification?
The BRC offers an extensive range of training courses that help manufacturers to
understand the process of implementing and auditing against the Standards. The courses
are highly interactive and focus on offering practical advice based on actual case studies.
Courses can be tailored to suit individuals and organisations’ specific needs.
Pick and mix content
In addition to its usual courses, the BRC now offers companies the opportunity to pick and
mix content from any of the BRC training materials to create truly bespoke courses. This
ensures delegates attending any BRC course are sure to leave armed with the knowledge
they require to achieve and maintain certification.
