If his customers are asking for it he needs to have some sort of answer for them.

Since Storage and distribution is not my area I don't feel qualified to answer however I'm sure some one on here can help him.

 

I'd imagine his customers are looking for verification that his goods haven't been tampered with or substituted, as well as trying to pass the buck of VACCP onto him.....

 

I'd suggest going to his suppliers and requesting THEIR VACCP risk assessment and then add in his steps in the chain with his risk assessment.

Think you'll find that as an agent it would be BRC Agent's & Brokers that would be relevant and not Storage & Distribution!

Section 4.3 Global Standard for Agents and Brokers

 

4.3 Product security/food defence
Security systems shall ensure that products are protected from theft, substitution or malicious contamination whilst under the management control of the company.
4.3.1
The company shall assess the potential risks to the security of the products during subcontracted transportation and storage by the service providers the company appoints. Security measures identified by the risk assessment shall form part of the contract or terms and conditions for subcontracted suppliers which have access to the product.
4.3.2
The security arrangements at subcontracted suppliers which handle product shall be verified at the start of a contract and then at a frequency based on risk thereafter.
 
I think this may be what he needs to look at.
