Is there a hidden requirement for how often we train GMP's?  I am not seeing anything in the standard that directly states we have to.

Answering this may depend on which standard you are addressing.  FDA and USDA regulations don't mandate frequency of training. FDA clearly mandates GMP training for all who prepare, pack or hold food. Most GFSI audits require refresher training but you define the frequency based on risk and need.  Most companies do at least annual refresher sessions.

Thank you!  We are BRC Issue 6 for Packaging.

That is exactly what I was hoping to hear!
