BRC packaging is designed for manufacturers of packaging who supply components or ready-made packaging for the packaging of foodstuffs, as well as their suppliers, In addition, a BRC certificate is recommended for any suppliers of packaging materials to Great Britain who have been requested by the local retail chains to provide that kind of evidence.
A major portion of all foodstuffs sold in Great Britain is retailer branded. In order to meet their legal obligations, retailers are required to monitor their suppliers, and to demonstrate their own “due diligence“ when placing food on the market. That also includes the manufacturers of food packaging, who need to demonstrate fulfillment of the requirements of BRC Packaging.

EN 15593: Standard for Food Packaging
EN 15593 is an internationally recognized standard for hygiene management in the food packaging industry. It specifies requirements for manufacturers and suppliers of food packaging, including storage and transportation.
The standard is based upon the principles of hazard analysis and risk assessment, and specifies appropriate levels of control points and measures for each stage in the manufacturing process. The requirements are formulated in such a way that they can be easily integrated into management systems such as ISO 9001 and ISO 22000, but the guidelines can also be used as an independent hygiene management system.
EN 15593 was introduced in 2008 as the European alternative to the BRC/IoP standard and has already gained widespread acceptance in Europe. Its focus is primarily upon first-level packaging, but it can also be applied to other packaging components and to suppliers of packaging manufacturers.
- Reduced Liability risks
- Confirms effectiveness of the hygiene management system
- Protects consumers
- Meets the expectations of the food industry and increases confidence among the buyers of packaging materials
