美国国家标准协会(ANSI)是美国自愿性标准化体系的协调组织,目前ANSI正在推出认证机构试点项目,以寻求BRC全球标准消费产品第四期认证。ANSI正在接受对该项目的申请,截止日期是2017年10月20日。

BR全球标准是一个品牌和消费者保护机构,于2016年11月1日发布了新版BRC消费品(个人护理用品、家居用品和普通商品)全球标准。新修订的消费品标准第四版有两部分是专门针对个人护理用品、家居用品和普通商品的。采用的两个等级——基础等级和更高等级——使

标准更易于实施,,鼓励不断改进,从而满足消费者的不同要求。关于监督审核的减免和取消协议书已经做了修订。

作这国际认可论坛(IAF)中多边认可协议(MLA)的签署方,ANSI被BRC认可为认可BRC消费品全球标准第四版的认证机构(CBs)

希望参与ANSI BRC消费品全球标准试点项目的潜在申请人,首先必须通过自身能力和工作经验,向BRC展示他们现在承认的这个认证机构符合每一个部门员工的要求,并得到BRC的肯定。

一旦收到BRC对认证机构和审核员的资格/工作经验的认可,ANSI将会完成下列工作:

1.   确认ANSI认可的认证机构和BRC签署了有效协议,且协议涵盖适用部分。

2.   使用以下标准评价CB:

-ISO/IEC 17065:2012,合格评定---认证产品,工艺和服务的机构所要符合的要求

-BRC 004:为反BRC全球标准提供认证的机构所要符合的要求

-BRC消费品全球标准第四版

-适用的ANSI要求

获取新认证试点计划的申请资格,请联系ANSI产品与工艺高级项目主任Reinaldo Figueiredo(rfigueir@ansi.org; 202.331.3611),或者ANSI产品认证资格鉴定项目的协调人Elizabeth Okutuga(EOkutuga@ansi.org; 202.331.3627)。

ANSI Launches Pilot Program for Certification Bodies Seeking Accreditation to BRC Global Standard for Consumer Products Issue 4

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI), coordinator of the U.S. voluntary standardization system, has launched a Pilot Accreditation Program for certification bodies seeking accreditation to BRC Global Standard for Consumer Products Issue 4. ANSI is accepting applications for the program untilFriday, October 20, 2017.

BRC Global Standards, a brand- and consumer-protection organization, published the new BRC Global Standards for Consumer Products (Personal Care and Household and General Merchandising) on November 1, 2016. The revised version of the Consumer Products Standard Issue 4 contains two parts that specifically focus on general merchandising and personal care and household items. The introduction of two levels ─Foundation Level and Higher Level─ was to allow simpler entry to the standard and encourage continuous improvement and to align with the different expectations of customers. Additional changes have been made to the protocol regarding exclusions and the removal of surveillance audits.

As a signatory to the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) Multilateral Recognition Arrangement (MLA), ANSI is recognized by BRC as an accreditation body that accredits certification bodies (CBs) to BRC Global Standard for Consumer Products Issue 4.

Potential applicants seeking to be part of the ANSI BRC Global Standard for Consumer Products Pilot Program must first seek BRC approval by demonstrating, through qualifications and work experience, that the currently BRC-recognized CB meets the personnel criteria specified for each component.

Upon receipt of such BRC approval of the qualifications/work experience of the CB body and auditors, ANSI will do the following:

1. Verify that the ANSI-accredited certification body has a valid agreement with BRC that covers the applicable components.

2. Use the following criteria to assess the CB:

ISO/IEC 17065:2012, Conformity assessment - Requirements for bodies certifying products, processes, and services

- BRC 004: Requirements for Certification Bodies Offering Certification Against the Criteria of the BRC Global Standards

- BRC Global Standard for Consumer Products Issue 4

- Applicable ANSI requirements

To obtain an application for the new Pilot Accreditation Program, please contact Reinaldo Figueiredo (rfigueir@ansi.org; 202.331.3611), ANSI senior program director for product and process accreditation, or Elizabeth Okutuga (EOkutuga@ansi.org; 202.331.3627), program coordinator for ANSI’s product certification accreditation program.
