  20. Grading & Audit Frequency • In line with other Standards • Sign of Maturity • Site Aspirations • Certification Body may carry out further visits or question activities where they think it is necessary to validate continued certification. • These visits may take the form of announced or unannounced visits to undertake either a full or partial audit. • Reflection of commitment • Robust certification

  21. Audit Report and Certification • Certification Body uses a Standard report template from the BRC • Auditor must complete the report using his/her notes • - recording conformity • - recording non-conformity • It is uploaded to the Directory www.brcdirectory.com • If the Audit is successful the Certificate is issued to the site • Sites can allocate access to their report to their customers

  22. Certification Body Performance Monitoring • Certification Bodies must be Registered, Approved and Accredited • The BRC recognises that the factors that give clients confidence are: • Quality • Consistency • BRC runs a quality assurance programme • BRC provides feedback on the performance of each Certification Body through a key performance indicator (KPI) programme • The KPIs translate to star rating, visible on the Directory • Companies audited against the Standard can provide feedback on the performance of the Auditor
