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 (GFSI) benchmarking committee, the reason over 3,500 suppliers in over 80 countries have become certificated to the scheme.

The Standard is designed to assist packaging manufacturers and converters to adopt good manufacturing practices. It is intended to help them in producing quality management systems in order to develop and manufacture safe, legal packaging materials meeting their customer’s quality requirements.

It is applicable to manufacturers producing packaging materials for both food and consumer products recognising 2 levels of hygiene risk depending on the end use of the packaging materials.
