BRC Agents & Brokers Certification


The final certification link in a
transparent and traceable supply chain.

The BRC Global Standard for Agents & Brokers completes the BRC family of food safety standards. It provides a food safety management system for importers, sales agents and food brokers. Cert ID is one of the first Certification Bodies to offer the Standard, and one of a limited number of BRC 5* rated certification bodies offering the standard in the UK. 

Issue 2 Release

As you may be aware, the BRC re-issued the Global Standard for Agents and Brokers as Issue 2 in August 2017, with Issue 2 audits commencing on 1st February 2018. You will be expected to comply with the new requirements from this date unless advised of any clause exceptions. Audits starting 31st January or before will be audited against Issue1.

All elements of the previous version have been maintained, with some clarification and additions and a significant refocus on the transparency of the supply chain being introduced.

The Standard is available to download as a free PDF from the
BRC Bookshop.


If you have any further queries prior to the Issue 2 launch on 1st February 2018 please don’t hesitate to contact us. Email: cheryl.pierpoint@cert-id.eu for more info.
