Packaging

The BRC Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials is the first Packaging Standard in the world to be recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GSFI) benchmarking committee. It’s why over 3,500 suppliers in over 80 countries have chosen to be certificated to this scheme and is recommended or accepted by specifiers worldwide.

The BRC Packaging Standard can be used by any manufacturer producing packaging materials for all types of products – from food to consumer products – at all levels: primary, secondary and tertiary. This will help you develop and manufacture safe, legal packaging materials that meet the quality levels expected by your customers and consumers.


The BRC Global Standard is divided into eight manufacturing technologies:

  • Glass manufacture and forming
  • Papermaking and conversion
  • Metal forming
  • Rigid plastics forming
  • Flexible plastics manufacture
  • Other manufacturing
  • Print processes
  • Chemical processes
