Can anyone share what is the difference in requirements between BRC-IOP, Issue 04 - High risk category & Low risk category

The new issue of the BRC/IOP Standard recognises two categories of operation:

High Hygiene Risk: ‘Packaging that comes into direct contact with food products (or other designated hygiene-sensitive products. Primary packaging used for food or other hygiene-sensitive products where there is no absolute barrier in place’.

Low Hygiene Risk: ‘Packaging for consumer products and the secondary and tertiary packaging for all uses’.

The BRC/IOP Standard has six primary operational sections covering:

  1. Senior Management Commitment and Continual Improvement
  2. Hazard and Risk Management Systems
  3. Product Safety and Quality Management Systems
  4. Site Standards
  5. Product and Process Control
  6. Personnel

New to this issue of the BRC/IOP Standard are:

  • A grading system reflecting the number and the severity of non conformances identified during the certification audit process.
  • The introduction of ‘Fundamental’ Clauses to reflect the importance of operations crucial to an effective and safe packaging operation.
  • Any major non-conformance raised against a statement of intent of a Fundamental Clause would not permit certification to take place.
