BRC Packaging

What does BRC Packaging Certificated mean?
Packaging is a fundamental part of any brand. It defines product integrity, security and drives innovation.
Consumers are attracted to strong and recognisable products that need to be consistent in size, colour and
shape. Packaging is therefore an integral part of the manufacturing process.
The BRC Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials is the first Packaging Standard in the
world to be recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GSFI) benchmarking committee. It’s why over
3,500 suppliers in over 80 countries have chosen to be certificated to this scheme and is recommended or
accepted by specifiers worldwide.
The BRC Packaging Standard can be used by any manufacturer producing packaging materials for all types
of products – from food to consumer products – at all levels: primary, secondary and tertiary.
ISSUE 5: July 2015
Issue 5 of the BRC Global Standard was published in July 2015 after consultation with industry experts and
we’ve designed the Standard to help you adopt good manufacturing practices and support quality
management systems. This will help you develop and manufacture safe, legal packaging materials that
meet the quality levels expected by your customers and consumers.

The BRC Global Standard is divided into eight manufacturing technologies:
 Glass manufacture and forming
 Papermaking and conversion
 Metal forming
 Rigid plastics forming
 Flexible plastics manufacture
 Other manufacturing
 Print processes
 Chemical processes

If you require food approved packaging which has BRC certification, then please ask when leaving your enquiry with us.
