Thank you for your interest in DNV GL - Business Assurance events. The BRCGS Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials has been updated from Issue 5 to Issue 6, with the first BRCGS Packaging Audits and Certification to Issue 6 commencing in February 2020. The BRCGS Global Standard for Packaging Materials was the first packaging standard to be globally recognized, and is a popular standard for those operating within and supplying packaging to the food and beverage industries. BRCGS Packaging Materials Certification has been used as a competitive advantage for packaging suppliers in the marketplace to demonstrate worldwide compliance, and to accelerate growth of sales in the food, beverage, and consumer goods industries. The BRCGS has recently launched the Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials Issue 6, with changes that bring it in line with Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) packaging requirements, industry best practices and the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety Issue 8. This compelling webinar will explore the updates from Issue 5 to Issue 6. The changes to the standard will be reviewed, including the addition of a new audit protocol, new fundamental clauses in the standard, and other important highlights. This webinar is delivered to you in cooperation with Comprehensive Food Safety Consulting firm.
