BRCGS has developed a range of additional modules designed to help remove audit duplication and reduce costs for sites undertaking a Global Standards audits.
This additional module has been developed in association with the Association of European Coeliac Societies (AOECS) to enable food manufacturers to demonstrate to their customers that the products supplied have been formulated, processed and prepared to meet the special dietary needs of people intolerant to gluten, meet legal requirements and are applicable to assurance schemes managed by AOECS.
This module enables compliance with the AOECS’s Standard for Gluten-free Foods to be assessed during a Global Standard for Food Safety Issue 8 audit.
Certification to this module in association with the Global Standard for Food Safety Issue 8 will assist food manufacturers by reducing the need for a separate audit to satisfy the requirements of the AOECS Standard.
The main benefits include:
- reducing audit costs and audit time
- ensuring proper focus on the safe production of gluten-free foods
