BRC Admin Fees Increasing Again

Best Answer BRCGS Technical, 16 September 2014 - 07:57 AM

Hi all,


As a member of the BRC Team I thought I should comment to hopefully alleviate some of your concerns on this topic.  We do fully appreciate the concerns you’ve raised here especially in the current economic climate.  However, we would stress that this increase in fee is part of a number of wide-ranging developments we are undertaking in order to improve the Standards for all users.  These include the introduction of BRC Participate which is an on-line subscription service which will allow you to download our Standards FREE of charge. This is a major change to our business model. This shift to an annual subscription online platform will also enable easier access to all BRC Global Standards, Guidelines and other publications and will provide great value. The fee also contributes to our Compliance strategy of increasing the amount of site visits, responses to complaints, witness audits and Certification Body head office audits to help improve consistency in application of the Standard.  Through the database we also provide information to purchasers regarding the status of their supply chain and analysis on non conformance. So with this increase in fee we hope you find that there will be an improvement for all overall and it will prove to be more cost-effective in the long term.  If you have any questions, please let us know.

I can't imagine that BRC would liek a topic with some pretty heated complaints about their service to keep popping up with a big HOT isgn next to it. 

And after they were so good to us, social media wise!


I've seen the non-GMO standard rep on here too - I love it when standard reps are on - but let's do them the courtesy of not bumping a topic they've asked to let die.


I realize that the irony of posting this is that it will again bump the topic.  I'm shameless.
