BRCGS Publishes Statement About Certificate Extension PLUS

There are still travel and work restrictions in place in many countries due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. As a result, many audits cannot be carried out, either because the sites are not able to operate or auditors are not permitted to travel. The BRCGS observes that many sites agree with the certification extension process for audits that cannot be managed onsite but there is also a growing need for additional assurance over and above the certificate extension process BRCGS072.

Therefore, the BRCGS has created the audit protocol "Certificate Extension PLUS" to offer increased levels of assurance to customers through a more extensive assessment process based on a full site self-assessment and the use of remote technologies.

The audit protocol can be downloaded on the website of the BRCGS.
