MANHATTAN, KAS. — AIB International Certification Services (AIBI-CS) recently received ANSI accreditation to offer IFS audits and earned BRC’s 5-star rating.

AIBI-CS now is approved to offer certification to the IFS Food Standard. They also are authorized to offer IFS PACsecure and IFS Logistics certification for the packaging and storage and distribution markets and will be accredited later this year.

“AIBI-CS continues to expand our certification audit portfolio to offer a variety of certification options that align with our core industries,” said Stephanie Lopez, president of AIBI-CS. “The addition of the IFS audit scheme to our portfolio allow us to remain a competitive leading provider of GFSI certification audits and offer an increasing number of certification schemes for our valued clients to choose from.”

Additionally, AIBI-CS was awarded a 5-star rating, BRC’s highest achievement for certification bodies. Of the 92 certification bodies across the globe that are listed in BRC’s performance rating directory, only 65 of those have achieved 5 stars, according to AIB.

“AIBI-CS is very proud of our BRC 5-star rating,” Ms. Lopez said. “This is not only an indication that AIBI-CS’ auditors are well calibrated, but it also provides an added value for our clients. Customers that do business with a highly-rated certification body are less likely to have their certificates revoked or withdrawn due to procedure error by the certification body.”

AIBI-CS offers certification to the BRC standards for food, packaging and packaging materials, and storage and distribution.
