Update: 14th May 2020
We have updated BRC072 - Audits impacted by Covid-19.
The key changes are:
- For risk assessments carried out from 1st June 2020, there will be a BRCGS service fee of £250 to cover the extended certification period.
- The fee for START! certificate extensions will be £75.
Physical onsite Unannounced audits
- There is a temporary suspension of the requirement for unannounced onsite audits by stakeholders which continues.
- However if sites are happy to continue within the unannounced programme, then unannounced audits may be carried out.
Certificate life on re-audit
We have removed the reference to a 12 month certificate from the new onsite audit date – we are reviewing all the rules once onsite audits start up again following feedback to our consultation and will let you know details when they are available.
