DES MOINES, Iowa – Eurofins Food Safety Systems was recognized as an independent Certification Body designation by BRC Global Standards on January 11. Eurofins US Food Safety Systems division is now able to conduct BRC Global Standard for Food Safety Issue 7 audits and BRC Global Standard for Storage and Distribution Issue 3 audits.
“We are very excited to add the BRC Global Standards for Food Safety as well as BRC Global Standards for Storage and Distribution to our scope of certification services in North America. We have been executing this program working with our regional partners over the last two years and we are ready to bring the process in house,” said Gary Smith, Director of Eurofins Food Safety Systems.
Eurofins Food Safety Systems began the BRC Certification Body application process in early December 2017. Executing the BRC certification program in house will allow Eurofins to service customers faster and respond to the growth expected within the BRC program over the next few years. Prior to this certification, certificates were issued by Eurofins’ European auditing group.
“This will allow for a much more efficient and improved customer service experience. Managing the certification locally will also allow us to expand our regional partnerships,” said Kris Middleton, Technical Manager at Eurofins Food Safety Systems.
Maintaining this program will enable Eurofins to easily adapt when BRC Global Standards for Food Safety Issue 8s published, giving Eurofins the ability to work directly with BRC Global Standards and provide valuable services to customers.
“Eurofins is excited to increase their offerings and believes providing this program shows their commitment to growing the US and North American brand,” Middleton said.
