Campden BRI’s BRC v8 briefing seminars, taking place during Autumn 2018, are designed to provide a timely opportunity to find out about the many changes to the standard and what businesses will have to do to comply. Some of the key changes include:

+ Compulsory food safety culture

+ Whistle blowing mechanisms

+ FSMA compliance requirements

+ Protection of digital documents

+ Internal audits

+ Supplier approval / monitoring split

+ Traceability procedure

+ Food defence

+ Environmental monitoring

+ Fully validated cooking instructions

+ Creation of a “new” section 8

+ Section 9 – traded goods

Attendees will be given an overview of changes and protocol by BRC technical director, David Brackston, and will learn about environmental monitoring and food defence from Campden BRI food safety management system expert Richard Leathers. Bertrand Emond, Campden BRI, will talk about food safety culture and there will be a Q&A session.

These seminars are, says Campden. suitable for technical managers, those who work on supplier quality assurance schemes and auditors within the food industry.
