NSF International Receives ANSI Accreditation for BRC and SQF Standards

Oct. 13, 2009

NSF International announced it is the first organization in North America to obtain both British Retail Consortium (BRC) and Safe Quality Food (SQF) accreditation from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).  This accreditation from ANSI, the authority on U.S. standards and conformity assessment systems, expands the scope of NSF’s Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI)-recognized accreditation to include BRC, enabling NSF to help more companies throughout the food supply chain strengthen their quality assurance programs.

NSF offers certification to GFSI-benchmarked food safety standards, such as BRC and SQF.  These global food safety certification systems promote consistency across the supply chain and provide independent certification that a product, process or service complies with international, regulatory and other specified standards.

BRC, a GFSI-benchmarked food safety standard developed by the British Retail Consortium, integrates Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) systems, factory environment, process control, quality management system, product control and personnel training. Adding BRC accreditation through ANSI enables NSF to provide clients with the food safety certification services they need to compete in today’s global marketplace.
