BRC launches fifth Global Standard issue
BRC Global Standards has released its fifth issue of its Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials.

The publication will focus on:a move from ‘good practice’ to ‘best practice’; quality management systems in printed packaging controls; how to ensure consistency of the audit process and providing a standard that meets retailers’ and brand owners’ needs to reduce the audit burden.

Building on the core principles of management commitment, a hazard and risk analysis-based product safety programme and a supporting quality management system, the objective of Issue 5 is to focus on the implementation of good manufacturing practices within the production areas while recognising the diversity and breadth of the packaging industry, and the skills required to audit it​,” said Joanna Griffiths, packaging technical manager, BRC Global Standards.

Other topics include: better recognition of the diversity of the packaging industry and its customers’ demands; encouraging greater transparency and traceability in the supply chain and encouraging adoption of the standard as a means of improving product safety at small sites and facilities where processes are still in development.
