Course outline:

This 3-day course will provide delegates with an in-depth understanding of both of the BRC Global Standards for Consumer Products – Personal Care and Household and General Merchandise.

Working with major specifiers and brand owners, the Standard has been substantially updated to meet market expectations. The course is designed to equip delegates with the skills and knowledge to successfully audit against Issue 4 of the Standard.

Before the course you must have read and reviewed a copy of each of the two Standards which are available to download free of charge from the BRC Bookshop.

This course is part of the BRC Global Standards Professional recognition programme.

The course is aimed at:

  • Current BRC Global Standards auditors of the BRC Global Standard for Consumer Products.
  • BRC Global Standards auditors or other third party auditors wishing to audit the BRC Global Standard for Consumer Products.
  • ISO9001 or cGMP auditors.


Auditors must hold a Lead Assessor qualification.

At the end of the course you will:

  • understand the reasons for changes to the Standard, including industry developments;
  • understand the requirements for each of the Standards – both at Foundation and Higher level;
  • have knowledge of auditor requirements and how the BRC Global Standards audit process should be carried out and reported;
  • understand the role of the BRC Global Standards compliance programme; and
  • have gained the skills required to conduct a BRC Global Standards audit to either Standard, and write a correct and full audit report.
