Our Evaluators' Qualification in Packaging Technology (EQIPT) course is designed for those wishing to audit against the BRCGS for Packaging Materials (Issue) that don't hold a recognised packaging qualification.  The full EQIPT course includes the study of two specialist material areas.

Our EQIPT Benchmarking Service is for those potential auditors that have significant experience of the industry and may not need to study the full course.  In this case our benchmarking adjudicators may recommend that additional study is needed in certain material areas.

The Additional Assignments option is for those on the full course who wish to study more than two material areas and those that have been granted partial exemption from EQIPT as part of the benchmarking service.

Additional assignments are available in the following material areas and the fee per unit is £235 +VAT at 20% where applicable.  A discount on the course fee of 10% is available to members of IOM3. 

  • B1 Glass packaging
  • B2 Rigid plastics packaging
  • B3 Flexible plastics packaging
  • B4 Paper, paperboard, corrugated and wood packaging.
  • B5 Metal packaging
