BRC Global Standard for Food Safety ISSUE 8
The Global Standard for Food Safety is developed by food industry experts from retailers, manufacturers, and foodservice organizations to ensure it is rigorous and detailed, yet easy to understand.
First published in 1998, the Food Safety Standard is now in its eighth issue and is well-established globally. It has evolved with input from many leading global specifiers.
It provides a framework to manage product safety, integrity, legality and quality, and the operational controls for these criteria in the food and food ingredient manufacturing, processing, and packing industry.
The Standard focuses on:
encouraging the development of product safety culture;
expanding the requirements for environmental monitoring to reflect the increasing importance of this technique;
encouraging sites to further develop systems for security and food defense;
adding clarity to the requirements for high-risk, high-care and ambient high-care production risk zones;
providing greater clarity for sites manufacturing pet food; and
ensuring global applicability and bench-marking to the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).
