As part of the development of Issue 2 of the BRC Global Standard for Agents and Brokers we have been working to develop guidance material to assist agents and brokers operating in, or trading with the USA, to understand the requirements and implications of the FSMA (Food Safety Modernisation Act) legislation on them and their supply chains. This will take the form of a guidance document and voluntary module. The draft guidance document is attached below. Comments and feedback on this draft guidance can be made using the same feedback form as for comments on the main BRC Global Standard.

Guidance documents

We also publish more extensive Guideline documents that identify best practice in particular ways of working, for example Pest Control and Metal Detection, and Interpretation Guidelines which explain each clause of the BRC Global Standard in more detail. These Guidelines provide an invaluable reference tool when preparing for your assessment.

Position statement

During the lifetime of a published BRC Global Standard the BRC Technical Advisory Committees may be asked to either review the wording of a clause in the BRC Global Standard or to provide an interpretation of a requirement or rule.

The decision made by the Technical Advisory Committee is known as a Position Statement. Position Statements are binding on the way the audit and certification process is carried out and are seen as an extension to the BRC Global Standard.
