My name is Ulrich Schraewer and I consult food manufacturers in achieving and/or maintaining the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety.
The new Issue 7 introduced a new type of assessment. Under Clause 5.4.2 a vulnerability assessment is required for raw materials.
I sat down and came up with one option how to do this assessment and to be compliant with the standard. Please find attached a short pdf file which shows my approach to do a vulnerability assessment. The excel template can be downloaded from my website.
