BRC  Position Statements

The BRC can update any of the Standards, at any time, by publishing ‘BRC Position Statements’.brc position statements

The requirements laid out in the BRC position statements become part of the Standard, from the date specified.  If you have your audit after this date and have not implemented the requirements of the position statement, you will get a non-conformance – so it’s really important you know about them and implement them.

However, BRC don’t notify you when they publish a BRC position statement.  So, it’s up to you to check regularly to see if they have published any position statements which apply to the Standard that you’re working to.

Here, we’ll explain how to find any published BRC position statements (as they’re not too easy to find) and we’ll also provide you with information about any published position statements.

We will keep this information up to date, so you can check this page at any time and find what you need, rather than having to dig around the BRC website. We’ll also notify you when a position statement is published and direct you to this page for the information you need, if you subscriber to Techni-K Smart Knowledge. So, sign up if you’ve not already done so.

BRC don’t always publish all of their position statements on the main website.  So if you find something on Participate that you think others can benefit from, please share it – by adding it to our discussion page.  You can also add your thoughts and comments about position statements too.

What to find them yourself?

No problem, here’s how you find them…

1. Go to the BRCGS website:

2. Click the first menu item ‘BRCGS’

3. Click on which Standard you’re looking for

4. Under the heading picture you’ll see another menu. Click on ‘HELP AND GUIDANCE’

5. Scroll down until you see the title ‘POSITION STATEMENTS’

Unfortunately the way that the position statements are loaded onto the website isn’t consistent, so you’ll need to open each one every time you look, to check to see if it’s been updated.
