GlassGuard at the BRC Global Standards Conference

22 March 2012

GlassGuard was a key sponsor and exhibitor at the 2012 BRC Global Standards Conference, at the Millennium Mayfair Hotel in London

The conference brought together a wide audience of organisations to hear how the BRC is developing its Global Standards Certification Scheme and Training Academy around the world. GlassGuard was on hand to guide delegates on the IEC 61549 Fragment Retention Lamp Standard, providing information on the risk of glass contamination from accidental lamp breakage.

GlassGuard, in partnership with the BRC, has been promoting industry compliant fragment retention lamps to all certificated food and packaging manufacturers since the introduction of IEC 61549 Fragment Retention Lamp Standard in 2010. GlassGuard’s Marketing Manager Stewart Damonsing says: “We have enjoyed a long and productive partnership with the BRC and the IEC 61549 Fragment Retention Lamp Standard aligns with the BRC’s aim to produce the most effective Food Safety Standard.”

Delegates visiting the GlassGuard stand were given the opportunity to view GlassGuard’s training module: ‘An Introduction to Fragment Retention Fluorescent Lamps’ providing them with an application guideline and highlighting the dangers and cost implications of using non-compliant products. Anyone who did not attend the conference can download the training module at
