One of the first steps in preparing for an audit is a self-assessment or gap analysis to identify areas for additional preparation. BRC Global Standards have developed a self-assessment tool to assist with this process which is available in several languages. Click on the relevant link to download the document.
During the lifetime of a published BRC Global Standard the BRC Global Standards Technical Advisory Committees may be asked to either review the wording of a clause in the BRC Global Standard or to provide an interpretation of a requirement or rule.
The decision made by the Technical Advisory Committee is known as a Position Statement. Position Statements are binding on the way the audit and certification process is carried out and are seen as an extension to the BRC Global Standard.
