Quality Assured Pork Sausages / Pigs in blankets
Referring to clause 2.1.1 in the General Charter Rules: All new applicants and charter participants shall hold a valid certificate of conformity (minimum Grade B) against the current version of the British Retail Consortium Global Standard for Food Safety (BRC GFS) and that the scope of approval shall include the operational activities relevant to the pork charter and its module(s) and take account of any seasonal lines e.g. pigs in blankets, that the charter member or applicant is being assessed against.
In the case of composite products e.g. pigs in blankets, each product component i.e. the bacon and the sausage, shall be certified against the appropriate pork module. The site at which the composite product is being produced shall have current certification against one of the pork modules (2, 3, 4 or 5).
