BRC Food

BRC Global Standard for Food Safety is the flagship Standard of BRC organization which relates to food safety management.


BRC stands for British Retail Consortium. BRC is the lead trade organization that represents a wide range of retailers, from large chains and department stores to independent retailers offering a variety of products, both in city centers, outside or in rural or virtual stores.


In 1998, responding to the needs of the sector, the British Retail Consortium has developed and launched the BRC Food Technical Standard used to evaluate manufacturers of retailers own brands. Their goal is to support retailers and brand owners in the defense of "due diligence" if forced to be accountable to the court at the request of law enforcement. Accordingly to European food law, retailers and brand owners bear the legal responsibility for their brands.

BRC Food Safety certification

When all requirements of the BRC Food Safety standard are met, and it can be so proven by internal audits, the organization may proceed to an external audit. This external audit should be carried out by a third party – accredited certification body.


Certification will be carried out in 2 Stages. During stage 1 the auditor will check the functioning of the food safety system in the organization. Stage 2 takes place outside the premises of the organization. Auditor prepares an extensive report of the certification.


During certification BRC Food Safety auditor will focus on a review of the activities of an organization and their compliance with the requirements of the Standard.


After positively completing the certification  the Auditor shall recommend that a certificate for BRC Food Safety is issued and registered.
