The BRC scheme consists of an ‘inspection protocol’ and a ‘technical standard’. The inspection protocol is meant for supervisory bodies. The technical standard, an extensive checklist, is what it is all about for food suppliers. There are 3 levels in which a supplier can obtain his BRC technical standard: A, B, or C. In addition to this a number of “Recommendations on good practice” are also provided. During the assessment, the technical standards of every level are checked, but the company needs to comply with the C level at the least. The aim is to stimulate the company to keep on developing, so it meets the highest level (A level) after a while. Herman Desserts reached this level in 2004. With a BRC certificate, a manufacturer immediately complies with all the demands of the supermarkets. The certificate is highly appreciated because it reduces the costs for both manufacturer and customer and it has been officially recognized by The GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative).
