It is vital for retailers to have confidence in their suppliers and it’s equally important for suppliers to be able to demonstrate the quality of their work to retailers. The BRC’s range of Global Standards enables both sides to achieve their aim by establishing a set of objectives, which, once achieved, guarantee a certain standard of product.
In order to make the process of achieving certification as straightforward as possible, the BRC has introduced a series of Guidelines that provide practical advice on implementing the various requirements within the Standards. The Guidelines help producers and manufacturers of all sizes and levels of experience to approach the certification process with confidence.
