BRC Packaging Standard & AuditOne Webinar

In partnership with BRC Global Standards, Lloyd’s Register (LR) will be delivering a webinar about the BRC Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials, and AuditOne - the new initiative that simplifies the audit process for packaging suppliers in cooperation with some of the largest global retailers. 

The BRC Global Standard for Packaging & Packaging Materials is the first packaging standard in the world to be recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GSFI) benchmarking committee, and demonstrates that manufacturers produce safe, functional and compliant products. AuditOne makes a bold step in removing the necessity for suppliers to host multiple audits and comply with individual reporting procedures by offering a harmonized, streamlined audit process that simplifies operations, increases transparency and enhances compliance reporting throughout the FMCG/CPG supply chain. 

LR is an approved Certification Body for all BRC Global Standards and has also been approved to deliver supply chain certification services to AuditOne™ standards. As a market-leading global brand, BRC Global Standards helps build confidence in the supply chain and set the benchmark for good manufacturing practice. Together, we help provide safety and quality assurance to manufacturers and suppliers throughout the global supply chain. During the webinar, LR and BRC experts will share their knowledge on packaging quality systems certification, provide an overview of the AuditOne platform and the certification process.
