We are very excited announce that the BRCGS Ethical Trading and Responsible Sourcing (ETRS) Auditor Training Course has been recognised as CPD by APSCA, when the course is delivered by an ASPCA approved auditor.

APSCA, the Association of Professional Social Compliance Auditors, is the leading industry association created to support individuals and organizations by promoting the use of independent social compliance audits as a tool to advance workplace conditions globally. APSCA Member Auditors are required to complete a minimum of 48 hours of CPD per calendar year to maintain their status and the BRCGS ETRS auditor training can now be counted as CPD hours toward this requirement.

Please note that the course is only recognised as CPD when it is delivered by an APSCA approved auditor. The BRCGS Academy has an APSCA approved auditor in-house but if you are considering using a BRCGS-approved training partner (ATP) to complete this course, we would advise you to check this requirement in advance of booking.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the BRCGS Training Team on brcgs.training@lgcgroup.com
