Achieve the Packaging Materials Certification

The BRC Packaging Certification has been designed by the BRC and the Institute of packaging to provide a technical standard for manufacturers producing packaging materials for all types of products, on any level.

The standard looks to implement effective systems and procedures to ensure the quality of packaging for food and non-food use.

Since its launch in 2001, the standard has gained approval from many major retailers and packaging businesses across the world.

What Are The Benefits of a BRC Packaging Certification?

A BRC Packaging certification demonstrates to potential and current customers that your business operates to a globally recognised standard of quality for packaging.

This certification provides customers with confidence in the safety of your operation and can prove compliance with supplier approval processes.

The BRC Packaging Standard is the first packaging standard to be recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative benchmarking committee. As a result, over 3,500 suppliers in over 80 countries have chosen to be certificated to this scheme.
