New to BRC so I need some advice. I run a new production line making aerosol valves for deodorant aerosols. I had a first audit 2 months ago biased on low risk as my sister company had passed BRC at this level 1 year ago. This is a state of the art production facility and has been running for 4 months. On the audit introductions the auditor stated that we were high risk. I tried to put my point over to the auditor that how could I be high risk when our sister company was low risk. We make the valve that is fitted to the top on the can and sprays the deodorant to peoples under arms so no contact with the skin, This valve sits in alcohol so any bacteria is killed off. I have decided to set the risk assessments as high risk and risk assess back down to low risk. I have completed a bioburden test on raw material and finished valve and had very low readings. My question is how can my process be "HIGH RISK"?
