Global Standard for Storage and Distribution Standard V3

 

Background to Global Standard for Storage and Distribution V3 Standard

 

 

Food processing facilities have had BRC Global for Food Safety as an accreditation standard for a long time, (indeed we are now up to Version 7).

Packaging suppliers have the packaging and packaging materials standard to be accredited to.

There was obviously been a gap in the food & packaging supply chain that has now been covered by Agents & Food Brokers.

Most storage and distribution hubs have had BRC Storage & Distribution accreditation standard for a number of years as well and we are now up to version 3.

The Global Standard for Storage and Distribution has been developed to provide a framework to manage product safety, quality and legality within the storage and transportation supply chain.

It is an obvious thing to say that Storage and Distribution can have as major an influence in product safety and quality standards as the producers and can have a direct say in an effective chain of traceability.

The Global Standard for Storage and Distribution V3 offers such bodies the means to show off both their food safety & legislative excellence.
