Customer confidence


Whether you’re an international, multi-channel retailer, or a single store operation, the BRC Global Standard ensures your customers have confidence in your operational services and supply chain management.

Many retailers, brand owners, raw material processors and packaging manufacturers worldwide support BRC Global Standards and accept them as part of their supplier approval, brand protection and process optimization.


Achievable and cost effective


Developed by industry experts, the BRC Global Standard for Retail is rigorous and detailed, yet easy to understand. The BRC Global Standard is designed to reflect best practice and provide a common sense, risk-based approach to product safety and certification. And because there’s a straightforward certification process it means there are no hidden costs. If your business is prepared and confident about food safety, the only cost will be that of the audit, which is charged at a local rate.


Highly trained auditors worldwide


All our audits are carried out by a global network of highly trained Certification Bodies. We have industry leading standards when it comes to the competence, qualifications and experience of our auditors, and they are closely monitored too. This ensures the audit standards and certification process is stringently maintained and consistent worldwide.


Support when you need it


We have an established BRC Global Standards Technical Team that provides support and is available to answer any technical questions you may have. We also have International Technical Committees to ensure the ongoing development of the BRC Global Standards through a process of collaboration and continuous improvement. If you have any concerns, there’s an established and transparent complaints procedure that ensures any matters are investigated thoroughly and vigorously followed up.
