BRC (British Retail Consortium)​

The BRC leads the industry and collaborates with their members to communicate the retail narrative, shape discussions, and impact challenges and opportunities that will help make a positive difference. Their work exemplifies the careers of those who work in the business, the communities that retail impacts, and competition as a core component of the industry’s success.

British Retail Consortium

The National Pharmaceutical Regulatory Agency (NPRA), formerly known as the National Pharmaceutical Control Bureau (NPCB) – was set up in October 1978 under the quality control activity of Pharmacy and Supply Programme. The institution was established to implement quality control on pharmaceutical products. The infrastructure and facilities were designed to meet the requirements for testing and quality control activities. NPRA was recognised globally in 1996 by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as a “WHO Collaborating Centre for Regulatory Regulation of Pharmaceuticals”. 

This membership comprises over 170 major retailers – whether operating physical stores, multichannel or pureplay online – plus thousands of smaller, independent retailers through a number of niche retail Trade Associations that are themselves members of BRC. To date, the members have delivered an estimated £180bn of retail sales and has employed over 1.5 million employees.

Retail is an exciting, dynamic and diverse industry. It is a driving force in our economy, a hotbed of innovation and the UK’s largest private sector employer. Retailers touch the lives of millions of people every day, supporting the vibrancy of the communities they operate in. However, the industry is going through a period of profound change, with technology transforming how people shop, costs increasing, and growth in consumer spending slowing.

Retailing will continue to evolve and advance. Online retail will continue to grow as retailers invest in new emerging technologies; there will be fewer stores and those stores remaining will offer new experiences; there will be fewer, but better jobs and a career in retail in the future will be very different to today.

DagangHalal is committed to feature a consultation and training, with necessary certification of participation to ensure the industry thrives through this period of transformation – with the BRC way.
