What’s a BRCGS Consultant?

As everyone probably knows BRC has changed it’s name – it’s now BRCGS. As part of the re-branding exercise BRC Registered Consultants are now called BRCGS Consultants.

This is what BRCGS says about a BRCGS Consultant, “Consultants are a link between BRCGS and manufacturing sites, and they have the skills, knowledge and expertise to help you achieve and maintain your certification.”

To become a BRCGS Consultant BRCGS have the following criteria:

  • Rigorous background checks to ensure they have the right skills and knowledge.
  • The completion of BRCGS training on requirements and auditing.
  • Education to degree level in the relevant sector of the Global Standard.
  • A minimum of five years’ sector experience.

These skills separate a BRCGS Consultant from a consultant that works on BRCGS standards; only a BRCGS Consultant is recognised as an expert by the scheme owner.

If your company would benefit from BRCGS consultancy then work with a BRCGS Consultant. If the consultant isn’t on this Consultant database they aren’t approved by BRCGS.
