Hi all

Although I'm not new to ISO Standards, I am pretty new to BRC IOP and it's requirements.

I own a small business whereby I perform a cleaning process to a product which is used to store food containers and my customers have requested I consider becoming certificated to BRC/IOP.

Before I invest in the Standard, could someone please let me have a copy of a pre-defined compliance check-list so that I can judge how far I am away from becoming compliant.

I understand if such documents cannot be posted on the forum, so if it's ok, please send to my email address.

From your brief description, it looks to me that you are not within the scope of the BRC/IoP Standard. This Standard is for the manufacture of packaging and similar materials.

It is more likely that you would come under the the BRC Storage and Distribution Standard, which has modules for contracted services.

As an example, if you washed pallets or plastic trays on behalf of a manufacturer, the S&D Standard has a module for that process.

If you give more detail about your operation we can be more specific.
