BRC clause 1.3.4 below: 


The senior management of the company shall have a system in place to ensure that it is kept informed of all relevant legislation, product safety issues, scientific and technical developments, and industry codes of practice. There shall be a system in place to ensure that relevant information is passed to the management at other locations, where appropriate.


Could anyone share what websites you subscribe for scientific and technical information for storage and distribution? 


I found some information in the BRC - food safety section below but want to see how everyone receive information specifically for storage and distribution?

You can grab news and updates as needed from the FDA's page:  News & Events | FDA


If you're feeling super fancy, you can visit some of the FDA RSS feeds and get them sent to your work email.  I'm subscribed to their Outbreaks and Safety Recall feeds, and configured my outlook to slot them to their own folders automatically.  I also set the recall alerts to show on a SharePoint site my company's QA teams used across the country.

Hi, just wondering if there are some helpful links we can use as evidence for critical limits or validation? Many scientific articles require a subscription. Thanks.

IMO, just say you visit some publishers' websites and browse latest volumes/issues of some food-safety journals. I mean you read titles of new articles, not their contents which usually stay behind paywalls

Some significant publishers are sciencedirect (Elsevier), Wiley, Springer, Royalsociety,

Scientists around the globe call those greedy companies. You can go to researchgate(dot)com to request free access or make direct contact to the author of article you'd like to read.

I'm guessing that the above posts lean towards food products but as the S&D Standard also covers packaging materials, I thought I'd put up the Food Packaging Forum.( https://www.foodpackagingforum.org)


This is a free searchable database with regular newsletters highlighting recent research and upcoming legislation. Very up to date, articles/papers are often not much more than a few days after publication
