Agriculture and Food BRCGS Global Standard for Storage and Distribution Certification
BRCGS Global Standard for Storage and Distribution certification from SGS demonstrates compliance and competence to this GFSI recognised standard.
Our global network allows us to offer certification to the BRCGS Storage and Distribution standard wherever you, or your suppliers, are based. The standard is applicable to providers of storage, distribution and wholesale services for food, packaging and consumer products. It also applies if you store and provide contracted services on pre-packed food and packaging, for example, if you perform product inspections and/or assembly packing of retail ready items.
Internationally accepted and recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), the BRCGS Global Standard for Storage and Distribution facilitates the complete coverage of the food chain – from farm gate to consumer. The standard sets a new benchmark for quality including:
- Management commitment
- Product safety culture
- Hazard and risk assessment
- Product safety and quality management system
- Emphasis on continual improvement
- Supplier and subcontracted services management
- The potential risk of food fraud/adulteration throughout the supplier chain
- Traceability back to the last point of manufacture
Certification to the BRCGS standard will demonstrate your management and control of sub contractors used throughout the supply chain. This helps you and your supplier network to adopt the highest standards in food safety and comply with customer requirements. In addition, a valid certificate against the BRCGS’ Global Standards – granted by SGS – enhances your access to global markets.
Why choose SGS?
Whatever the location, we use auditors who speak the local language and understand the local culture to conduct the audits. To help ensure that good product safety management practices are being followed at all times, audits are completed annually for food and packaging.
