Hoping someone can help with a quick question please.
We're BRC Food / BRC Agents & Brokers certified, but many of our suppliers are FSSC22k.
In previous years, they've been able to provide a short/summary copy of the audit report for their certification - this is very useful in the UK as, with the prevailing mentality of BRC requirements, retailer standards and transparency commitments, most of our clients expect to see a copy of the report from third-party certification.
Obviously unlike BRC, FSSC reports aren't written with the same expectation of being shared publicly, so the "short" report provided a compromise that was just about acceptable to suppliers and customers alike.
With these suppliers now moving on to the new V4.1 standard, we're being told that the short reports can no longer be provided by certification bodies. Can anyone confirm if this is correct please?
Thanks in advance!
