BRC Global Standard for Packaging

This 60 minute Webinar is aimed at improving your understanding of the BRC Global Standard for Packaging, a GFSI benchmarked standard.

Packaging and Packaging Materials

The BRC/IOP Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials is designed to assist packaging manufacturers and converters in adopting good manufacturing practices and supporting quality management systems to develop and manufacture safe, legal packaging materials meeting their customers' quality requirements.

The packaging industry is divided into specific product technologies and auditors have knowledge and experience of the particular technologies in order to be registered. The Standard recognizes two levels of hygiene risk depending on the end use of the packaging materials, for instance direct food contact is the highest level and will fall into the high hygiene risk category, while non-food packaging will fall into the low hygiene risk category. The requirements of the standard are itemized separately depending upon the level.
