BRCGS for Packaging and Packaging Materials is primarily applicable to packaging that comes into direct contact with food products, obligating manufacturers to implement control systems, ensuring safety for the consumers.
A key aim of this standard is providing a common basis for the evaluation of companies supplying packaging for food products to retailers. Furthermore, it also provides a single common standard and protocol that would enable an external assessment to be undertaken by a competent and non-biased third-party organization.
The Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials can be used by any manufacturer that produces packaging materials for all types of products – from food to consumer products – at all levels: primary, secondary and tertiary.
Certification is achieved by undertaking a third-party audit against Standard requirements by an accredited certification body (CB).
