As a result of the audit conducted by SGS in December 2013 Pechatnya Print House has been certified against BRC/IoP. The certification scope included manufacturing of cartons for packing foods, pharmaceutical and cosmetics. The certificate GB14/90842 (BRC registration number 1088622) has been issued for the duration of 1 year.
BRC/IoP Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials Issue 4 is one of the standards recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative – GSFI, the most reputable organization in the world in the area of food safety. Цель стандарта – содействовать пищевой безопасности, а также сокращению отходов, жалоб потребителей и отзывам продукции с рынка. The standard aims at improving food safety, as well as helping reduce waste, complaints, recalls and rejected products. Many retailers, FMCG manufacturers and packaging manufacturers support the use of the Standard and accept it as part of their supplier approval processes. It’s HACCP based and incorporates best manufacturing practice.
Pavel Ananyev, Business Development Manager for Russian at SGS Systems and Services Certification: ‘The BRC/IoP certificate testifies of the fact that a management system has been implemented and operating in the organization to assure production of safe packaging in the framework of a food supply chain. To-date, approximately 2000 sites have been certified against this standard, out of which 40 sites only are located in the territory of the Russian Federation. We are pleased to note that Pechatnya Print House is now part of those’.
Roman Zagorskiy, General Director at Pechatny Print House: ‘Our company has been constantly developing and successful certification has proved it. Currently we are actively working in carton packaging for cosmetics and confectionery, this makes the BRC certificate particularly important. I would like to express my gratitude to the whole team for professionalism before and during the audit’.
