I have a question pertaining to a certain line of the BRC Interpretation Guideline:
The objective is to ensure that the safety of finished products is not jeopardized through malicious actions or unauthorized persons gaining access to site. Therefore, security systems shall be in place to limit and control access to the external areas of the site, buildings and product.
The Director of Quality and Food Safety and I (we're the main architects of working towards BRC) were going over our food defense policy and ran across the before mentioned passage and now we're kind of worried that we're going to have to start making plans to put fencing and gates up around our facility, which will be difficult since the entire area our plant is contained in is controlled by a condo association which prohibits fencing.
I guess my question is: are we going to have to put up fencing and gates to attain BRC certification?
