What is the BRC Global Standard for Storage and Distribution?

BRC provides a standardised framework to ensure consistent quality, safety and efficiency in the storage and distribution of manufactured goods. Now in its 11th year, the quality certification programme encourages a culture of continuous improvement throughout businesses.

Why is it Important?

It is essential that production lines are completely transparent. Retailers are keen to show customers their commitment to quality, from the factory floor right through to the supermarket shelf. BRC facilitates this process and reinforces exemplary standards across manufacturing industries. The BRC is a leading global schee and internationally recognised as a badge of quality throughout the food industry. Achieving this accreditation proves our integrity and establishes trust with our consumers.

What does the BRC Global Standard for Storage and Distribution Consider?

The BRC certification explores eight key categories: Senior Management, Hazard and Risk Analysis, Quality Management System, Site and Building Standards, Vehicle Operating Standards, Facility Management, Good Operating Practices and Personnel. Issue 3 introduced a grading system that means companies are now audited on a scale of ‘AA-D’ depending on how closely they comply with the standards set out by BRC. It is audited by UK Food Certification.
