Non-food / Consumer Goods, Wood / Paper

BRC Consumer Products

Besides the Global Standard for Food Safety and the Global Standard for Packaging Materials, the British Retail Consortium BRC has, in cooperation with RILA (Retail Industry Leaders Association), developed a standard exclusively addressing manufacturers of non-food products. This was necessary because the British retailers were increasingly becoming aware of the fact that the so-called non-food products can lead to risks for the end user, just like food. A Certificate based on BRC Consumer Products means that the company works according to the opportunities offered by "best practice" and is committed to manufacturing products that are safe, comply with legislation and are high-quality. The standard is usable for almost all products, which range from tobacco and clothing via electrical appliances and tooling for the house and garden to bicycles and toys.

Forest Stewardship Council Chain of Custody (FSC CoC)

Consumers are becoming more and more critical. They increasingly desire products that are also manufactured according to ecological and social criteria. When presenting the FSC Logo, companies ensure wood comes from forests cultivated sustainably. Certified companies can directly place the FSC Logo on the product and can use this logo for advertising purposes. As the number of critical consumers is growing and FSC is increasingly becoming known, FSC provides companies with a simple management tool, which enables them to work sustainably and communicate this credibly. In 1993, the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) was established as a worldwide independent and non-profit organization by environmental bodies, representatives of domestic ethnical groups and companies active in forestry and timber industry. FSC is a member-based organization that is open to any individual and legal entities. SQS, which is an accredited Certification Body, is recognized as an auditing body by FSC. Quality Austria cooperates with SQS.
