In this link you can choose the standard you are looking for and download it for free (requires login).


There are also guidance documents for each standard.


good luck.

Hi Safefoodgal,


My humble apologies but yr 2nd post in this thread got accidentally deleted during some rearranging.


IIRC, it basically stated that you were interested if anyone could advise as to any certification-based training courses for BRC ?


if I have missed anything please add on a new post.


Sorry again.


PS - JFI the Guidance docs for BRC referred in post2  are, unlike SQF, sadly not free.

Kind Regards,

Personally I've never had a training course for BRC, I simply attend the update meetings when they happen.  As Charles says, the interpretation guidelines aren't free but considering you used to have to pay for the standard, at least that is free nowadays.  Membership of BRC participate also brings other benefits and for the cost I'd say it's worth it and cheaper than a training course.  IMO the standards are reasonably clearly written, there is always room for interpretation but I've found in more recent years, where that room is possible, auditors have been open to discussion and as long as you've approached things reasonably have been fine with whatever you've chosen.


Honestly it's not rocket science and IMO the BRC food standard makes a great basis for a FSQMS.  Not in my current role but in the past I've structured a quality manual around it which then links to documents on each section.  Sadly nowadays I supply pretty much every major global retailer so it quickly escalates from just BRC.
