Join the Public Consultation Process for revising the BRCGS Agents and Brokers Standard

The revision and evolution of Standards are at the heart of BRCGS’s work. By reviewing the standards, BRCGS can ensure that they incorporate latest industry trends and operations, practical experiences and best practices from industry. The revision process enables BRCGS to take into account the changing expectations, regulatory requirements and consumer needs. It provides the opportunity to build on the value that customers and stakeholders gain from the use of BRCGS’s Standards. There has been a year-on-year increase in the recognition of the Standard, and there are currently 600 certificated businesses.

An important next step in the development of the Global Standard for Agents & Brokers Issue 3 is an extensive consultation to understand stakeholders’ requirements and views on the draft proposals. BRCGS is delighted to announce that this consultation period 3 is now open and welcomes your feedback.

The consultation document has been developed and reviewed by working groups made up of international stakeholders representing agents & brokers, retailers, food service companies, brand owners, certification bodies and independent technical experts.

Stakeholders are encouraged to consider the details within this document and provide feedback on both the proposed requirements and the audit protocol.

The closing date for submission of feedback is 28th February 2021. Visit the BRCGS website for further details.
