The IFS Broker standard is a certification scheme for the safety of the products in companies that purchase goods themselves, but do not themselves come into contact with the goods and have these goods delivered directly to their customers.
The scheme is also managed by the German, French and Italian retailers. More and more brokers are requested from their clients to be certified against this standard to guarantee the safety of their products.
The IFS Broker standard has the following chapters:
- quality system and HACCP system management
- management responsibility
- resource and personnel guidelines
- rules for the service provision
