BRC Global Standards

BRCGS Solid Blue
Avantgates is the only locking system that can fully meet the standards imposed by the BRC.

The requirements that companies must meet to obtain and confirm the BRC certification are as follows:

  1. Safety and Quality suitable System Management
  2. Suitable Site Standard
  3. Suitable Production Control

BRC-Food-Certificated
BRC Food Certification represents Global food safety Standard: point of reference for food producers so that they can produce safe food  without any contamination and with high quality.

BRC-Packaging-Certif
BRC Packaging Certification represents the Global Standard for any type of packaging producers, linked to a production that ensure compliance with safety and quality for final consumer. Avantgates is the only certified closures which full satisfy those Standards about safety and quality (external contamination) for external and internal access control.

 

BRC-Food-Certificated BRC Food Standard 7th version:

• Ch. 4.2. Security: “The Company shall undertake a documented assessment of the security arrangements and potential risks to the products from any deliberate attempt to inflict contamination or damage. Areas shall be assessed according to risk; sensitive or restricted areas shall be definite, clearly marked, monitored and controlled. Identified security arrangements to reduce risks shall be implemented and reviewed at least annually”

• Clause 4.2.2: “Measures shall be in place to ensure only authorized personnel have access to production and storage areas, and access to the site by employees, contractor and visitors shall be controlled. A visitor reporting system shall be in place. Staff shall be trained in site security procedures and encouraged to report unidentified or unknown visitors”

• Clause 3.11.1: “The company shall have documented procedures designed to report and effectively manage incidents and potential emergency situations that impact food safety, legality or quality. This shall included consideration of contingency plans to maintain product safety, quality and legality”

• Clause 4.3.5: “Where high-risk areas are part of the manufacturing site, there shall be physical segregation between these areas and other part of the site. Segregation shall take into account the flow of product, nature of materials (including packaging), equipment, personnel, waste, airflow, air quality and utilities provision (including drains). Where physical barriers are not in place, the site shall have undertaken a documented risk assistment of the potential for cross-contamination, and effective, validated processes shall be in place to protect from contamination”

Why  AVANTGATES rather than a common horizontal sliding gate:

Avantgates is the only closure system that allows to move the heart of the system (hydraulic and electrical parts) in safety different places: this makes it impossible to open and create more protection and safety.
Avantgates replaces the possibilities to have physical presence of personnel to entrance/exit access of any kind of Company. Magnetic devices could also be associated to Avantgates to let only authorized personnel opening it.

Avantgates is the only closure system able to decrease the level of risk associated with physical-chemical contamination on the product. Avantgates could be used as standard entrance closing but also as a physical separation element inside the company like dangerous or confidential areas.

Avantgates is the only closure system able to guarantee complete safety against contamination and sabotage, as explained in the first point. It’s also the only gate with vertical opening that, in comparison to common sliding horizontal gate, has NO sliding line on the ground. Durability means use Avantgates: no line on ground so no problem with passage of heavy vehicles, hydraulic system and many other advantages that make the product unique for safety and durability.

Avantgates is the only closure system able to ensure a strict physical separation unlike common easily vulnerable barriers. Another peculiarity of Avantgates is that it do not need lateral sliding space and you could fit it really tight spaces and in places where there is high risk of falling (Avantgates, different from light barrier, is a barrier certify like a closure and like a guard rail in accordance with DM 14/01/2008 and EN Standards).

 

BRC-Packaging-Certif BRC Packaging Standard 5th Version:

• Clause 4.4.1: “ The company shall undertake a documented risk assessment of the security arrangements and potential risks to the products from any deliberate aempt to inflict contamination or damage.

Identified security arrangements to reduce risks shall be documented, implemented and reviewed at least annually”.

• Clause 4.4.2:  “ Measures shall be in place to ensure only authorised personnel have access to production and storage areas, and access to the site by employees, contractors and visitors shall be controlled. A visitor reporting system shall be in place. Staff shall be trained in site security procedures and encouraged to report unidentified or unknown visitors”.

• Clausola 5.10.6:  “ Vehicle drivers shall comply with the site rules relevant to this Standard. Access to the site for third-party transport personnel shall be controlled and, where possible, facilities provided to negate the need to enter storage or production areas”.

• Ch. 2 (Clause 2.2.5.): “ The hazard and risk analysis team shall identify and record all potential hazards that are reasonably expected to occur at each step in relation to the product and process”.

• Clause 4.1.5:  “ Where external storage of raw materials is necessary, these shall be protected in order to minimise the risk of contamination”.

• Clause 4.2.3:  “ Where they constitute a risk to product, and based on the likelihood and risk of non-production glass contamination, all bulbs and strip lights, including those on flying-insect control devices, shall be adequately protected”.

• Clause 4.4.3:  “ External storage tanks, silos and any intake pipes with an external opening shall be sufficiently secure to prevent unauthorised access”.

• Clause 4.5.2:  “ The process flow from intake to dispatch shall be arranged to minimise the risk of contamination or damage to the product”.

• Clause 4.1.1: “ Consideration shall be given to local activities and the site environment, which may have an adverse impact on the safety or quality of the finished product or raw materials, and measures shall be taken to prevent contamination”.
