Position Statement

During the lifetime of a published BRC Global Standard the BRC Technical Advisory Committees may be asked to either review the wording of a clause in the BRC Global Standard or to provide an interpretation of a requirement or rule.

The decision made by the Technical Advisory Committee is known as a Position Statement. Position Statements are binding on the way the audit and certification process is carried out and are seen as an extension to the Standard.
