Issue 3 of the BRC Storage & Distribution Standard Now Available

Ten years after the initial publication, the BRC has released a third issue of the BRC Global Standard for Storage and Distribution. The standard was published on August 1, 2016 and will enter into force on February 1, 2017.

BRC Global Standard Storage and Distribution issue 3The BRC Standard for Storage and Distribution outlines quality and safety requirements for the storage and distribution of both food and non-food products. As such, the standard bridges the gap between manufacturers and retailers and thereby increases transparency and safety along the supply chain.

The main changes in Issue 3 include the introduction of optional unannounced audits, the creation of an excellence level in the scoring system for certified sites that already perform very well as well as increased supplier approval requirements. Great care has also been taken to ensure greater consistency with the requirements of other BRC Global Standards.

The BRC Global Standard for Storage and Distribution Issue 3 can be downloaded from the BRC Bookshop free of charge.
