BRC Grading Chart

BRC audits are graded on the number and type of non-conformities with food safety standards.

The Non-conformities can be either:

  • Minor
  • Major and
  • Critical

The level assigned to each non-conformity depends on the nature of the item that is audited.

Report and Certification

Beyond the audit, a report and certificate will be issued, where the new certificate will replace the certificate from the previous audit and will outline the key aspects of the audit.
The report will convey with accuracy the findings of the auditor and will be added to the BRC Directory.
