Can someone try and answer a questions for me, We currently have the BRC storage and distribution standard issue 2 certification. we supply a range of packaging materials, some are and some are not direct food contact. A couple of our other branches do not have the standard and they also store and sell (as well as packaging) chemicals, IE soaps, bleach, polish etc etc.
The question I have, is there any rule to say I can not store these chemicals on site, I know we have direct food contact packaging, however, these goods are sealed at the manufacture and are never opened on our site, so if we was to make sure we keep the two separate then is this allowed. The reason I am unsure is, I can send the products out on a carrier that is also carrying chemicals as long as there is at least 1 full pallet space between my goods and the chemicals ( the was told to me by a BRC Auditor ) so if this is the case then surely I can store them ?
Look forward to any help you folks can give me.
