BRCGS position statement F837 Food Safety has been updated

What’s NEW?


It’s great to see that BRCGS have acknowledged that section 4.11.8 of the standard (relating to pathogens and spoilage organisms) simply doesn’t apply to a small number of food / beverage manufacturers. This comes up in detailed discussion on every BRCGS Food 8 Lead Auditor course as well as the Environmental Monitoring course I deliver.

The following products are an example of those sites where environmental monitoring can be justified as not required. However, do remember to justify why in your risk assessment!

  • Alcoholic beverages and vinegar’s
  • Salt and sugar in their dry ‘pure’ form
  • Edible oils with no added ingredients
  • Fully enclosed production.
  • Whole vegetables, sold unwashed

Don’t hesitate to get in touch for advice!
