BRC Certification

Food safety across frontiers

Tested food products in tested packaging: that's what the British Retail Consortium (BRC) stands for with the Global Standard for Food Safety and the Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials.

TÜV NORD UK can offer both standards, the BRC Global Standard Food Safety and the BRC/IOP Global Standard Packaging, helping companies in the food industry to satisfy all the relevant requirements even in the cross-border movement of goods. If you produce food for retailers’ own labels or manufacture under your own brand, or are a manufacturer of packaging and packaging materials, just contact us. We will be glad to draw up a certification offer and discuss the steps you need to take to prepare for certification.
