Event Overview

The global standard for packaging materials was originally developed and published by BRC in 2001.  The standard has been updated at regular intervals to reflect the latest thinking in product safety.  In 2019, BRCGS published Issue 6 of "Global Standard for Packaging Materials".

The SPA has received concerns from Sheet Plant Converter members that implementing Issue 6 is honorous - it requires too much time and focus from the business and several Sheet Plants have failed to implement the standard, as yet.  The SPA Committee has looked into Best Practice for BRCGS and is pleased to invite members to an online ZOOM meeting on the topic:




This online session will focus on highlighting the job of work to be done by members who have BRCGS Issue 5 already implemented or those who are thinking about implementing BRCGS Issue 6 at their Sheet Plant.  Robert Herridge, Managing Director of Packology** will be presenting an overview of BRCGS Issue 6 for SPA members, he will identify the differences between Issue 5 and Issue 6 and will review the common pitfalls that people are experiencing with implementation. 

This session is relevant to Owner/Managers of Sheet Plants and their Compliance Manager responsible for BRCGS Packaging Materials Standard. 

To register for the BRCGS Issue 6 - ZOOM Meeting for SPA Members, please email with your Name, Job Title, Company name and Email address.  A ZOOM invitation will be sent to you by return.
