The BRC Global Markets programme has been introduced to encourage the development of product safety and quality management systems in sites where the full requirements of the Standard may add less value and in sites that are still developing their management systems.
The programme will enable audits and recognition against a set of requirements of the Standard identified as basic level and a further set of requirements at intermediate level. It is designed to help factories progress towards full certification, but the programme also provides recognition of attainment at basic and intermediate levels, which are increasingly recognised by customers as providing assurance about the product safety systems operated at their suppliers’ sites.
