BRC is already one of the GFSI’s recognised certification programme owners (CPOs) and applied for re-benchmarking upon the release of the new version.

BRCGFSI is launching a new stakeholder consultation, which is a vital step in the benchmarking of the BRC Global Standards against the latest version of the GFSI Benchmarking Requirements, Version 7.1.

Why a Re-benchmarking?

GFSI continually evolves its benchmarking requirements to reflect new industry challenges, best practices and stakeholder input. With the publication of a new edition, CPOs are invited to complete a new benchmarking process. This collaborative exercise is one of the key ways by which new requirements are implemented throughout the industry for the benefit of consumers everywhere.

Why a Consultation?

Open stakeholder consultations are an important step in this process to ensure the greatest transparency and objectivity, and are conducted after the desktop self-assessment review led by an independent Benchmark Leader.

A Benchmarking Series

It’s benchmarking season! Following GFSI’s publication of a new version of its requirements, many certification programmes are currently going through the benchmarking process. Over the coming weeks and months, you can expect to see periodic benchmarking updates, consultations and announcements, so stay tuned! You can also check our website at any time to check the status of a benchmarking process.
