Originally developed and published in , the Global Standard for Packaging Materials was designed to protect the consumer by providing a common basis for the certification of companies supplying packaging to food producers.

The Standard has been updated at regular intervals since, to reflect the latest thinking in product safety, and has now attained usage worldwide, not only by food packaging producers, but by producers of packaging for all applications at all levels of the supply chain.

Certification against the Standard is recognised by many brand owners, retailers, food service companies and manufacturers around the world when assessing the capabilities of their suppliers. In response to demand, the Standard has been translated into many languages to facilitate implementation by packaging materials companies across the world.

The Standard has been developed to specify the product safety, quality and operational criteria that must be in place within a packaging manufacturing organisation in order for it to fulfil its obligations with regard to legal compliance and protection of the consumer. A review of emerging issues was also carried out in the packaging industry and the industries it supplies. The information has been developed and reviewed by a working group composed of international stakeholders representing different sectors of the packaging materials manufacturing industry, retailers, brand owners, food service companies, certification bodies and independent technical experts.

The requirements of Issue 6 have evolved from those of previous issues. There continues to be an emphasis on management commitment, a hazard and risk analysis-based product safety programme and a supporting quality management system. The objective has been to direct the focus of the audit towards the implementation of good manufacturing practices within the production areas while recognising the diversity and breadth of the packaging industry, and the skills required to audit it.

For any packaging quality management system to be effective it's essential that management personnel are fully aware of the requirements and are committed to the implementation.

The basis for the programme is an effective hazard and risk analysis based on the principles from the internationally recognised Codex Alimentarius system and encompasses hazard analysis and critical control points HACCP.

BRC Packaging Issue 5: An Overview of the Main Changes

The standard, which has been updated to reflect the changing requirements and expectations of the various stakeholders, will be valid from January 1 st , onwards. To help you prepare for certification, we have compiled an overview of the main changes in Issue 5. Like before, the BRC Packaging Standard distinguishes two main categories, with separate requirements. Whether a product falls in one category or the other depends on the intended use of the product. High Hygiene relates to those items that are intended to come into direct contact with food or other hygiene sensitive product, while Basic Hygiene is intended for all other items, such as labels applied to other packaging materials through to the manufacture of tertiary transit packaging.
