Cerificaes issued agains Issue 6 will remain valid or he duraion indicaed on he cerificae.This documen is inended o provide an inroducion o he new Issue 7 and a guide o all users o he changes and he reasons or he changes.The Appendix provides a ull index o all changes o he requiremens and is inended as a reerence or managers needing o updae heir qualiy sysems in preparaion or an audi agains Issue 7.There are a range o guidance documens including he ull Inerpreaion Guide providing guidance on all clauses available.

BACKGROUND TO THE PRODUCTION OF ISSUE 7 AND OBJECTIVES CONSULTATION AND DEVELOPMENT PROCESS The BRC Food Saey Sandard is widely used around he world and, beore saring he review or Issue 6, he BRC underook an exensive consulaion wih he users o he Sandard o undersand he srenghs and poenial areas or improvemen.The eedback on Issue 6 was generally very posiive and he coninual growh in use o he Sandard around he world, wih more han 18,000 cerificaed sies in 2014, is a esamen o is increasing inernaional populariy.The consulaion and review o emerging ood saey concerns since he developmen o Issue 6 idenified a number o opporuniies or urher improvemen.The key objecives idenified or he working groups were: ã Look or new ways o reduce he burden o muliple audis o cerificaed sies. ã Ensure ha he grading sysem provided a rue reflecion o he sandards a he sies and provide more opporuniies or he bes sies o differeniae hemselves. ã Include requiremens o encourage sies o reduce heir exposure o ood raud. ã Review high-care and high-risk requiremens and ensure ha where higher-risk ambien producs are produced, conrols are idenified. ã Ensure ha he requiremens and audi process are ocused on reducing he issues mos requenly causing recalls and wihdrawals. ã Revise he enrolmen programme o encourage upake.The deail o he Sandard was developed using wo muli-sakeholder working groups: one in Norh America and one in Europe. Each group was made up o represenaives rom reailers, ood services, cerificaion bodies, ood manuacurers and, in Europe, an accrediaion body, UKAS.The draf Sandard was esed in a series o rial audis and made available or public consulaion. More han 2,800 people rom around he world downloaded he draf documen. All o he commens on he draf were reviewed beore he final draf was produced.The BRC would like o hank all o hose people who have conribued o he developmen o Issue 7 o he Sandard. BRC GUIDELINE  A GUIDE TO THE CHANGES FROM ISSUE 6 TO ISSUE 7   4  WWW.BRCGLOBALSTANDARDS.COM KEY CHANGES TO THE REQUIREMENTS FOR ISSUE 7 STABILITY The Issue 6 sandard was well received and we recognise ha he Sandard is used as he basis or he qualiy managemen sysems ha have been esablished by many housands o sies around he world. In reviewing and rewriing he Sandard we have ried o concenrae on a ew major areas where he sandard needed o be revised o reflec he changing ood saey landscape. The vas majoriy o he requiremens o he Sandard are unchanged or wih sligh edis o he wording o aid clariy. This should mean ha or mos sies, he ocus or geting ready or Issue 7 is concenraed on a ew key areas. REDUCING THE EXPOSURE TO FOOD FRAUD (CLAUSES 5.4.1–3) There have been several very high-profile ood raud or aduleraion issues in he las couple o years including he addiion o melanin o milk powder in China and he subsiuion o bee by horsemea in Europe. Whils he Sandard is no designed o deec ood raud, i should provide confidence o cusomers ha heir suppliers have robus sysems in place o proec hemselves rom being he vicims o a raud urher back in he supply chain. Alhough covered as par o HACCP and supplier approval in Issue 6, we have increased he ocus on raud prevenion by inroducing hree new clauses. These look a vulnerabiliy o raud, as well as inroducing igher conrols on supplier approval, paricularly he conrols o agens and brokers. SUPPLY CHAIN TRACEABILITY (CLAUSE 3.9.3) The supply chains or producs have become increasingly complex, ofen including raw maerials rom around he world and may include agens or brokers as inermediaries. This has led o a lack o ransparency which becomes apparen oo ofen when an issue occurs requiring ull raceabiliy o a raw maerial. Reailers and ood service companies are increasingly looking or more inormaion abou he source o raw maerials used in heir producs o give hem confidence in he ood saey sysems operaed by raw maerial suppliers. In recogniion o his, Issue 7 has exended he requiremens or raceabiliy o include assurances abou he raceabiliy sysem operaed by raw maerial suppliers. AGENTS AND BROKERS (CLAUSE Where raw maerials are supplied by agens and brokers, i will be necessary o know he manuacurer o he raw maerial and ensure ha he manuacurer mees he raw maerial supplier approval process o he sie. PRODUCT LABELLING (CLAUSE 5.2) AND LABELLING AND PACK CONTROL (CLAUSE 6.2) An analysis o produc recall and produc wihdrawal daa shows ha he underlying cause o he greaes number o problems is labelling. Problems occur eiher because he label inormaion is incorrec as a resul o changes o ingrediens or suppliers, or because o errors made during he packing process. To atemp o ocus on he issue, clauses relaing o labelling and packing have been expanded and included in a new undamenal saemen o inen. CUSTOMER FOCUS (CLAUSE 3.12) Many o he cusomer audis underaken a BRC-cerificaed sies ocus on he cusomers’ own policies. A new se o requiremens has been added o provide cusomers wih greaer confidence ha sies are aware o and ac on cusomer-specific policies when producing producs or cusomers. MANAGEMENT OF SURPLUS FOOD PRODUCTS (CLAUSE 4.13) The pracice o providing surplus producs o chariies has become more common and is o be encouraged. Issue 7 has wo new clauses designed o ensure ha he ood is sae and labelled appropriaely and ha producs donaed bearing he cusomers’ brand are reaed in accordance wih he brand owner’s policies. NEW AMBIENT HIGH󰀭CARE AREAS (CLAUSE 4.3.7) Issue 6 inroduced more deail on he environmenal conrols or high-care and high-risk chilled and rozen producs. Since Issue 6 here have been a number o high-profile ood saey incidens affecing ambien producs (e.g. Salmonella   conaminaion o peanu buter in he US). In response, a new requiremen has been inroduced o ensure ha here are risk-based environmenal conrols o proec ambien producs where he produc is a risk o cross-conaminaion rom a raw maerial afer processing. CHANGES TO THE PROTOCOL There have been very ew changes o he way in which he Sandard is audied and cerificaed rom Issue 6 and ull deails can be ound wihin Par III o he Sandard. The main changes and reasons or he changes are summarised below. ã GRADING  – The grading srucure or Issue 7 has been exended o allow more differeniaion beween cerificaed sies. The new cerificaed grades will be AA, A, B, C and D wih a + added o he grade where he audi is carried ou unannounced.
