I apologise if this is in the wrong thread, I wasn't 100% sure where to put it.
I was hoping to ask everyone's advice on whether or not to keep our ISO certification.
I've recently joined a new company where they're looking to export FSMP products to Germany to distribute through the EU. There's also a plan to export to India.
The current certifications we hold are HACCP, ISO 9001 and SQF. We're going to drop the SQF and transition to BRC as that's what we've been told we need for India. With regards to the EU, will BRC on it's own be good enough or should we keep the ISO going as well (with a potential aim to upgrade to FSSC)? I've had more experience importing into Australia than out of it and am not sure what the preference is in the EU countries. We have asked the customer but they're not being especially helpful.
For a bit more context, from Germany the products will be going to the UK, Switzerland, France, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands and into Germany itself. Products won't be sold to the general public but will be going to hospitals, aged care facilities, etc.
Thanks in advance for any advice and Happy New Year!!
