About BRC/IoP Issue 4 Grading

Issue 4 of the BRC/IoP standard for packaging integrates a grading system, with ‘A’ representing highest result. ‘A’ or ‘B’ grading results in a plant are re-audited on annual basis, while a ‘C’ grade incurs a semi-annual re-audit, and ‘D’ grade sites are not certified. [1]
