Our 3 Cs

The BRC is an important, collective shield and advocate in uncertain times.


The BRC gives us an opportunity to benchmark and keep abreast with our retail colleagues, provides easy access to government policy makers, and collates an ‘industry’ view, which can then have influence and impact.

Marks & Spencer

Public policy is impacting on the retail industry on many fronts – without BRC membership it would not be possible for us to maintain awareness and influence the outcome.


Even when we only have limited influence on legal/regulatory changes, the early warning of change and ongoing updates from the BRC mean that we are able to plan our response with the maximum possible window.
