Guide for Glass Manufacturers
Publish Date: 12 April 2021
This publication provides a practical and specific interpretation of the Global Standard Packaging Materials (Issue 6) for the glass container manufacturing industry.
Although the recommendations in this guideline will cover most applications in the glass factory, they may need to be modified for certain special or individual cases as determined by the glass manufacturer. Based on the collated results of hazard analyses and risk assessments carried out by British Glass member companies the guide shows how the unique manufacturing process fits with and is supported by the requirements of the Standard.
The guideline can be used by industry members as a reference document, and internal procedures and standards can be checked against it to meet all the necessary requirements of the Standard.
This publication has been prepared by the British Glass Technical Committee, which is made up of technical representatives from all the UK glass container manufacturing companies in consultation with BRCGS.
