You might want a coffee while you read this one. The BRC have informed us that from October 1st 2017 the audit registration fee goes from £215 to £300. This is a charge that all Certification Bodies have to collect on behalf of the BRC so is part of our invoice to you for any BRC audit that we carry out. Thus for Micron2 it applies to the Food Safety, Storage & Distribution and Agents & Brokers Standards.
The BRC have stated that increase is to maintain their position as the premium GFSI scheme and so that innovations can be funded.
All our audit quotes for audits carried out after that date will be to the new rate, I am sorry to say, but this is a charge that we have to pass on.
