Trying to settle a debate about required training's for BRC and I am in agreement that all of the below is relevant. Am I missing anything that stand out??? Thank you!



BRC minimum training requirements:

  • Food Safety Policy
  • Food Defense
  • Allergens
  • GMP’s
  • BRC



Additional PRP’s that are good to train on include (but this is my personal opinion and not based in any regulatory requirements):

  • Glass Brittle Plastics (GBP)
  • Good Documentations Practices (GDP)
  • Consumer Complaints
  • Chemical Control
  • Non-Conformities/Holds
  • Pest Control

Who is this training for? In general staff should be evidently competent and training should be commensurate with their activity as far as I'm aware, so training requirements will vary. Difficult to pin down a generic list.

I just had the audit this week, here is the training list that I've been asked:


Quality policy

Food safety culture awareness (all staff)

Confidential reporting awareness 

Food defence 

VACCP (management, NPD and supply chain)

CCP (all relevant staff and QA personnel)


annual GMP refresher 


Internal audit training (to all internal auditor)


hope this helps

What do you call training ?


Each time you edit or create a procedure or instruction, the people doing that job need to be trained / told / ...  on the new method. It can be as easy as a 5 minutes talk, and I usually ask them to sign the document as a proof.

But in that case, you need to train the relevant staff for each single aspect of your quality management system.

I'm not sure what you're asking. 


Do you want to know what training you need to implement the BRC / run the BRC at your site, or, do you want to know what training the BRC requires from you for your site?
