The voluntary modules published alongside the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety Issue 7 have been designed to reduce multiple audits by covering additional specific geographical or customer requirements and auditing them at the same time as the BRC audit.
This voluntary module has been developed in association with the Association of European Coeliac Societies (AOECS) to enable food manufacturers to demonstrate to their customers that the products supplied have been formulated, processed and prepared to meet the special dietary needs of people intolerant to gluten, meet legal requirements and are applicable to assurance schemes managed by AOECS.
This module enables compliance with the AOECS's Standard for Gluten-free Foods to be assessed at a BRC Global Standard for Food Safety Issue 7 audit.
