Hi there,

specialists in Food Safety Monitoring Systems often summarize the relationship within good practices, public/private certification, national and regional law, pre-requisite programs and HACCP methodology with a pyramidal structure like the one you can find at the following link (or variants):


1. do you agree with this infographics (and why)? 
2. in the case of the BRC Global Standard - Consumer Products (non-food products) how such a infographics should be modify?

3. Which european laws, in particular, should be on the base, in the case of the BRC Global Standard - Consumer Products (non-food products)?

4. Which pre-requisite programmes will be at stake in the case of the BRC Global Standard - Consumer Products (non-food products)?

Thank you all in advance, 

Maurizio F.

Hi Maurizio,


The pyramid appears to be upside down to me, perhaps it should:


Food Law
GFSI Guidance
Best Practices


Prerequisite programmes will be as stipulated in sections 4 - 7 of the standard:


4. Site Standards
This section sets out expectations for the production environment including the layout and maintenance of the buildings and equipment, cleaning, pest control and waste management
5. Product inspection and testing
Identifies requirements for product testing, sampling and maintenance of reference samples
Based on the principles of Hazard and risk assessment this section looks at how the manufacturing process is managed and controlled to ensure production of consistently safe and legal products to the expected quality. This includes contamination controls, control of the packing operation and product release
7. Personnel
This section sets out the standards needed for staff training, and where applicable protective clothing and personal hygiene

Kind regards,
