In addition, the BRC produce standards that manufacturers have to comply with, in different product areas, such as food, packaging and consumer products. Companies exporting to the UK have to reach the BRC's standards to be certified via their own inspectors. Companies supplying supermarkets with own label food products often have to comply with the BRC standards: they are an industry-wide benchmark for quality and food safety.
