The New Food Standard BRC Issue #7

(Webinar length:  1 hr 26 min)


The BRC Food Safety Standard has a new revision, but rather than just tell you what the changes are, this webinar will focus on how to address these changes with specific ideas and examples.

BRC consulted broadly with the users of the Standard but also reviewed the issues within the food industry to be sure the program and audits were addressing real needs. The consultation identified a number of opportunities for strengthening and clarification within the Standard itself as well as new topics. These new topics include:

  • Supplier Management brought to a higher profile
  • Labeling and pack control
  • Authenticity and food fraud
  • Ambient high care
  • Customer focus & communication has been brought back.
  • An ‘AA’ grade has been added, and the ‘D’ grade brought back.

Objectives of this webinar:

The Webinar is intended to provide an introduction to the new Issue of the Standard but more so, explain how to meet the requirements, with specific examples. We will cover both an overview of the objectives and priorities that BRC had in updating the standard, but also looking in detail at the requirements of the Standard and providing explanation of the updated concepts and auditor expectations.

At the end of this Webinar you will understand the key differences between Issue 6 and Issue 7 of the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety. The organization of the standard has improved and there are additional requirements as well as some existing sections, such as Supplier Management, emphasized.

Also, there will be a brief review of the core programs within BRC that will most greatly benefit your plant, as well as ideas to keep the program as simple as possible.

  • Production Managers
  • Laboratory Managers
  • Food Safety Personnel
  • HACCP Coordinators
  • Government Food Inspectors
  • Sanitation Managers
