The BRC Standard for Agents and Brokers (agents and brokers) provides the essential certification for those companies that provide services of purchase, import or distribution of food products and/or the supply chain of packaging and consumer products.

It allows you to fill the gap between food producers and distributors, ensuring that suppliers operate according to quality and safety requirements and guaranteeing that the supplied product meets regulatory requirements and agreed contractual conditions.

This standard seeks to promote best practices in product safety, quality, traceability, compliance with legal requirements and consumer protection.

Its first version was published in 2014 and since August 2017 and version 2 is available.

Depending on the country, the same “ISO 9001” standard can be called differently, adding the name of the body that represents it within the country: UNE-EN-ISO 9001:2015 (Spain), IRAM-ISO 9001:2015, etc., accompanied by the year of the last update of the standard
