So a control Document List which links the all SOP/Procedure and forms to the location on the hard drive would be the Quality Manual?
I think you have described a "Document Register". The "Quality Manual" (QM) would logically exist on the Hard Drive.
Post 3 nicely explains the BRC expectations.
The QM essentially "spells out" how yr FSMS (minimally) complies to the requirements of the text of the BRC Standard. This approach is borrowed from iso 9001.
The format for the QM is flexible. One traditional ISO 9001 response is to simply reverse-engineer the 9001 Standard's own text while simultaneously creating/numbering/cross-referencing documents for the desired Policies, Procedures, Work Instructions (eg see Post3). This methodology is also acceptable for BRC. The generated documents can presumably be "collated" as you wish as long as you comply with clauses 3.2.(1 -3).
