About the event
To mark the launch of BRCGS Packaging Materials Issue 6, we have brought together experts from BRCGS and Lloyd's Register (LR) to present the key changes in the new Standard and explain how they might impact organisations.
It is four years since Issue 5 was published and the new version has been updated after consultation with industry experts to ensure it remains a relevant and powerful tool that helps packaging manufacturers ensure quality and safety.
The Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials Issue 5 was the first packaging Standard in the world to be recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GSFI). This has made it the chosen Standard for over 4,400 suppliers in over 80 countries to demonstrate good manufacturing practices and a robust quality management system.

- Focus on the new requirements in BRCGS Packaging Materials Issue 6
