As a company working in the food industry, you need a Declaration of compliance for each step of the production and delivery chains. This Declaration of compliance conditions are especially strict when ruling goods and materials in contact with food. Plastic materials are especially targeted with this document, because of the higher risk of material impact on the food product itself. The Declaration of compliance for plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food serves as guarantee for the documentation transparency but also as protection for the product safety and quality.

BRC is a global quality and safety standard for the food industry. It concerns all companies producing, processing or packaging loose foodstuff. The standard is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). An independent organization, which grants the certification through an audit.
From autumn 2016, companies will have the opportunity to register voluntarily for an unannounced audit in accordance with the IFS food certification standard. The audit date won't be communicated before and the company has to always be ready for the unannounced audit. This increases the attention to quality and transparency within the entire production process.
