Position statement

During the lifetime of a published BRC Global Standard the BRC Global Standards 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.

There are currently no position statements for Issue 5 of the BRC Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials.
