Benefits of a gluten-free management system
The long-term outcome of the GFCP Global Standard is to promote a systems approach to prevent failures that could harm the public.
Correctly applied, a site’s gluten-free management system (GFMS) will provide a very strong level of protection from failure, and if failure does occur, it will enable the rapid identification and management of risks and deviations.
Increasing the availability of gluten-free products that conform to regulatory requirements will enable market expansion and should, at the same time, reduce the burden on government enforcement. Consumers will benefit by having increased confidence in their purchases, wider availability, and variety of choice.
The BRCGS Standard for Food Safety, was the first Standardto be recognised by GFSI in 2000 and now at issue 9.
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.

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.
