Important update: Due to restrictions in movement within China as a result of the coronavirus, BRCGS audits due in China in February are likely to be postponed.

Where certificates are likely to expire as the result of postponement, we have issued rules to certification bodies allowing for certificate extension of up to six months following remote review of the sites in accordance with International Accreditation Forum (IAF) procedures.

We will keep the situation under review.

Please see the latest update regarding BRCGS audits due to the impact of the coronavirus.
