This guideline is designed to provide further explanation of the allergen management requirements of the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety Issue 7, and to aid individuals and companies in the development of robust allergen management systems and procedures that adequately meet the requirements of the Standard.
It should be noted that allergen management can be affected by all aspects of the Standard and, even if allergens are not specifically mentioned, a failure to meet any requirement (e.g. document control, supplier assessment or protective clothing) could potentially lead to an allergen issue.
