For a company to be issued a certificate against any of BRC Standards they must be audited against the Standard by an auditor who will issue a report. This report and the action taken by the company to correct identified non-conformities will be reviewed by an independent individual or panel of the Certification Body and certification approved or declined.
All certificates must be issued via a BRC approved Certification Body. Therefore, any auditor must work for a Certification Body, which may be on an employed or contracted basis. An independent auditor cannot issue BRC certificates.
The Certification Body is responsible for ensuring that the auditor fulfils the specified competency requirements, is registered with the BRC and that skills and knowledge of all registered auditors are maintained.
An appropriate higher education qualification such as a degree or diploma
Appropriate post qualification work experience (usually around 5 years in industry)
A recognised third party auditor qualification
Qualification in HACCP or risk assessment
Audit experience – generally a specified number of audits including those against BRC Global Standards
Completed BRC training in the specified Global Standard
If you are interested in becoming a BRC auditor there a number of training courses available that may help you. You should contact a Certification Body to establish their requirement for auditors.
