Food Safety Certification
With over 20,000 certificated suppliers globally, this GFSI benchmarked Standard is a key requirement for many retailers worldwide.
The BRCGS Standard for Food Safety, was the first Standard to be recognised by GFSI in 2000. Covering the following requirements, the Standard has been developed to take a common sense approach towards achieving certification:
- Senior management commitment
- The food safety plan - HACCP
- Food safety and quality management systems
- Site standards
- Product control
- Process control
- High-risk, high-care and ambient high-care production risk zones
- Requirements for traded products
In addition to the core Standard, we also offer certification against the following voluntary modules:
- GLOBAL G.A.P. Chain of Custody
- Meat Supply Chain Assurance
- Culture of Excellence
- BRCGS FSMA
BRCGS published Issue 9 of the Food Safety Standard in 2022, which came in to force for all audits conducted from 1st February 2023. A copy of new Standard can be found here.
The START! programme recognises and encourages the development of food safety systems in small sites.
Certification to the BRCGS Plant-Based standard enables sites to respond to the evolving demands of their customers.
BRGCS’s Gluten-Free Certification Program (GFCP) uses a scientifically proven, risk-based management systems approach for effectively controlling gluten and gluten cross-contamination from incoming ingredients to the final product.

If you are new to the assessment process for any of the Standards provided by UK Food Certification and are looking to have certification against the Standard, you may wish to consider a pre-assessment. These visits can be beneficial as our assessors will identify aspects of the Standard that you may not be conforming to, giving you the ability and time to prepare ahead of your full certificated assessment.
