BRC Issue 8 Key Changes

BRC Issue 8 is now published, we’ve updated our key changes document.  So, now you can see the changes between issue 7 and the draft of issue 8, plus the changes from the draft of issue 8 to the actual published document.

We’ve highlighted the changes in yellow to make it really clear. And where possible I’ve put a little comment next to each change, so you can see what the changes mean.

Where there is a major change in the standard (rather than just changes to the wording or small clarifications) I’ll then take these and explain the changes in detail in the upcoming articles.  If you’re not subscribed to Techni-K Smart Knowledge – take a minute to do that now, then you will receive these in your inbox as soon as we publish!

      Hi, nothing has changed with regard to this, issue 7 says:
      “Fly-killing devices and/or pheromone traps shall be correctly sited and operational. If there is a danger of insects being expelled from a fly-killing extermination device and contaminating the product, alternative systems and equipment shall be used.”
      So, if there is a risk of bits of zapped insects going into the product, because of where the EFK is sited, then you need to try to stop this. One way of doing this would be have sticky boards.j
      I hope that helps!
