BRC IoP (Institute of Packaging) (*)

Quality and food safety are of crucial importance for you as a company manufacturing packaging for the food industry. Purchasers of your products require you to offer guarantees of your firm commitment to quality and food safety. Are you able to provide these guarantees and are they accepted worldwide? Is this confirmed by an independent third party?

As part of the audit trail for BRC IoP, the Vinçotte auditor is required to assess your company's ability to meet the conditions specified in the BRC IoP standard. Under this heading, an examination is made of the quality system and HACCP system, along with your ability in practice to deliver products that are in line with your customers' specifications in terms of hygiene and suitable manufacturing practices.

  • An in-depth assessment of your quality and food safety system by a competent BRC-accredited auditor
  • A detailed audit report clearly indicating, if necessary, any departures from the BRC IoP standard and allowing you to minimise your risks
  • Where appropriate, a certificate offering you the opportunity to draw your customers' attention to your efforts
  • Accredited by the GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative), BRC therefore meets the requirements specified by retailers
  • Inclusion in the publicly accessible BRC register of certified companies
  • Lower costs and less time required to complete supplier audits
