Hi we are a polythene extrusion company who manufacture food contact bags and sheeting.

 

we also melt the scrap polythene and turn it into non food contact black waste sacks.

 

This process is isolated from any food contact product in another part of our factory.

 

our BRC scope specificaly excludes the manufacture of the regran material which means we cant use the BRC logo on paperwork or the website

 

Given that our management are desperate to use the logo is there anyway to enable us to do so?

 

I have thought of naming the regran process as a subsidiary company, so that the main company could be a food and non-food polythene producer certified to BRC(IOP) with a stand alone uncertified subsidiary manufacturing re-granulated polythene for black sack manufacture.   

 

unfortunately there is no way of introducing sufficient traceability into the re-granulating of the polythene as it includes unlabelled scrap from other producers, as well as our own scrap polythene.

 

thanks

Mark, you need to check with your Certification Body.

Simon nailed it.  Personally I'd question why you'd use it though.  Sadly nobody is impressed.  :thumbdown:   All that work and it's just an expectation.  In fact there is part of me that wonders about companies who use the BRC logo like mad.  It's just such a given nowadays that it feels like they really didn't expect to pass so now they're over the moon!
