The voluntary modules published alongside the Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials Issue 5 have been designed to reduce multiple audits by covering additional specific geographical or customer requirements and auditing them at the same time as the BRCGS audit.
This module is applicable to packaging products and materials that would normally fall within the scope of the Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials Issue 5 but which are not manufactured, further processed or repacked into primary packaging at the site being audited.
The scope of this module covers products that meet all of the following criteria:
• be purchased (take title to) and sold by the company
• be received into storage facilities at the site
• all the storage facilities used for the product shall be included within the scope of the Standard.
