As you may be aware, Issue 4 of BRCGS Global Standard Gluten-Free (formerly the Gluten-Free Certification Program) is currently under development. We had initially planned on publishing Issue 4 of the Standard on 01 November 2023 with audits commencing on 01 May 2024.

However, to ensure we continue to deliver a product and a level of service of which BRCGS and our stakeholders can be proud, we have decided to delay the publication of the Standard until February 2024. Audits to the new Issue of the Standard will now commence in August 2024.

The dates of availability of the Standard’s other key publications, and of the various Issue 4 training courses will be communicated at a later date.
