BRC is an abbreviation for the British Retail Consortium, which is a trade association for retail businesses in the UK. The British Retail Consortium Global Standard for Food Safety, known more commonly as BRC global standards, is a product and process certification standard known for compliance to industry best practices.

The global food safety initiative, gives retailers peace of mind that food products they choose to stock, have been manufactured, handled, stored, and transported in a safe and hygienic way, throughout the supply chain.

BRC standard certification is an internationally recognised mark of food safety and quality. It is not compulsory for businesses to be BRC accredited, however, most big retailers such as supermarkets, will only use businesses with the appropriate BRC accreditation in their supply chain.

One of the key areas of BRC compliance is ensuring that adequate pest control measures are in place. The relevant BRC standard states 'the whole site shall have an effective preventive pest management programme in place to minimise the risk of infestation and there shall be the resources available to respond rapidly to any issues which occur to prevent risk to products.'

In short, this means in order to be compliant with the standards, you must engage a professional pest control company who can implement an effective pest prevention programme and be on hand to deal with any active pest issues that may occur, quickly and efficiently.


As well as making sure that you have appropriate pest control provisions in place, it is also essential that you have the relevant reports and paperwork in place to properly evidence your compliance of the standards with a full audit trail.

This part of the service is absolutely vital and unfortunately, is something that many pest control companies are unable to deliver on sufficiently. This can result in businesses having their BRC certification downgraded or taken away, even when they did have appropriate pest control measures in place.

The BRC standards require comprehensive and applicable documentation reporting systems and documents relating to pest control must be in place and remain on site, under the supervision of the company at all times.


Here at Monitor we understand the specific needs of different food industry sectors and know which pests can pose a specific threat to certain food products and environments. We provide pest control for food processors, manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors & retailers.

Do BRC certified food companies have to continue with their pest control contract after they have their accreditation?

Yes. BRC accredited food manufacturers must continue to demonstrate their compliance on an ongoing basis and if they are unable to evidence their compliance, they risk losing their accreditation.

Do BRC certified packaging companies have to have the same level of pest control provision in place as food manufacturers?

Yes. BRC accredited packaging manufacturers that manufacture packaging for the food industry or pack food on their premises, must adhere to the same high standards as BRC food accredited businesses. This means being able to demonstrate that your whole site has an effective, preventive pest control programme in place to minimise the risk of infestation.

What are the BRC pest control standards that BRC certified companies must adhere to?

The BRC pest control spec states that 'the whole site shall have an effective preventive pest control programme in place to minimise the risk of infestation and there shall be the resources available to respond rapidly to any issues which occur to prevent risk to products.'

I'm thinking about getting my business British Retail Consortium, BRC accreditation in the UK. How much does the pest control element of BRC accreditation cost?

However, at Monitor we offer very competitive rates, so get in touch and speak to one of the team and we will be able to give you a better idea of costs once we have a few more details from you.

Do you provide pest control for BRC accredited warehousing in London?

Yes! We can provide BRC standard pest control contracts for food warehouses in London, Kent and across the South-East.

Do BRC accreditation certification bodies need proof that you have a pest control programme in place?

Yes! When assessing your compliance with the standards, BRC accreditation bodies will fully audit your processes and procedures. This will include seeing evidence that you have an adequate pest control programme in place, what that programme entails and that it is being followed correctly.

Are there different BRC accreditation grades?

Yes. There are 5 different certification grades, with each one relating to the number and severity of non-conformities found during an audit. The highest grade that can be achieved is AA, followed by A, B, C and D. Additionally, unannounced audits will have the + symbol added to the grade.

Can BRC accreditation checks be carried out unannounced?

Yes. BRC accredited businesses can be subject to an unannounced audit, so it is imperative that you ensure that you maintain good food safety systems and compliance of the standards at all times.
