The British Retail Consortium (BRC) has released guidelines to inform manufacturers of consumer goods how to adhere to its retailer standard.

Within the guidelines manufacturers are advised how to adhere to the standard that allows retailers to be certain of the safety, legality and quality consistency of the products they are selling.

Director of BRC Global Standards Dr Geoff Spriegel said: “This publication will help all manufacturers of consumer goods achieve and maintain certification against the latest BRC Global Standard for Consumer Products. The guideline will also be useful for auditors and those requesting that their suppliers adopt the Global Standard.”

Although British in origin, the standard was accepted by the US Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) back in August 2009. At the time, the organisation said the agreement would cut obstacles between manufacturers and the market, as they are often expected to go through different certification schemes depending on the retailer and the region.
