Looks like bait for some BRC-rants ?

LOL, Charles. C
I really am interested in hearing the experiences of people who are certified by any scheme before I select one or the other. You can't get a free copy of the ISO standards that the FSSC standard uses, so it is hard to know what the standard actually says.
But what any standard says is sometimes a bit different from how it is applied. And, yes, different auditors have their own quirks and biases, but if the certifying agency sets guidelines on what can and can't be done, then these will have a limited impact on an audit. The auditor may be a PIA to deal with, but they can't burn you unreasonably if the agency does not allow it.
So......PLEASE, give me your HONEST assessment of your experience with BRC. I depend on this group to be honest, and brutally honest at times, for the betterment of food safety and to help each other out.
And if anyone uses FSSC, I would love to hear how it works and your opinion of it.
For everyone, would you recommend using your current standard if it has good applicability to someone's situation?
Inquiring minds DO want to know, and I want to make the most informed decision that I can before I commit to one scheme or another.
I have ruled out SQF, BTW, because we could never meet one of their critical requirements because of the machinery that is used for our product. It is just not a good fit for us.
