BRCGS Start! Issue 2 launched

BRCGS Start! Issue 2 launched

24 Feb 2023

The revision of the START! programme and the development of Issue 2 has been underway for some time now and the new Issue 2 will be launched on 01 March 2023.

Developed in line with the full Global Standard Food Safety as an alternative for smaller businesses wishing to undertake certification, it is recognised and supported by many leading brands and retailers. The programme provides a clear path towards improved food safety standards as food businesses grow.

Following the publication launch of the much anticipated Issue 2 of the START! Standard in March 2023, audits to the new issue are expected to start six months later on 01 September 2023.

There is a webinar taking place on 02 March 2023 at 14:00(GMT) / 09:00(EST) where Richa Bedi-Navik, Senior Global Standards Manager, will introduce the new issue. It will cover the key changes in requirements and audit protocol, useful guidance and the transition timeline.
