BRCGS Packaging and Packaging Materials

A majority of the standards are focused specifically on the safety and quality of food processing while BRCGS  developed a specific standard that focuses directly on the packaging of food.

Benefits of Certification:

  • Assurance that legal requirements are met
  • Facilitates continuous improvement of quality, hygiene and product safety
  • Reduces the number of customer audits and the costs associated with them
  • Ensures suppliers are following good hygiene practices
  • Provides evidence of “due diligence” requirements of packaging manufacturer/supplier, packer/filler and retailer.

Expectations of the Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials:

  • Senior Management Commitment
  • Hazard and risk analysis management system
  • Quality management system
  • Prerequisite Programs

The BRCGS Packaging and Packaging Materials Standard covers the following categories:

  • Glass Manufacture and Forming
  • Paper making and Conversion
  • Metal Forming
  • Rigid Plastics Forming
  • Flexible Plastics Manufacture
  • Other Manufacturing
  • Print Processes
  • Chemical Processes

Requirements for the management of food safety and quality build upon the principles of:

  • product specifications
  • supplier approval
  • traceability
  • management of incidents/product recalls
