Emergency situation

Recall and withdrawal

A withdrawal is where product is removed from the supply chain, when it’s not yet reached the customer. A recall, is where the consumer is at risk, as the product has been made available for sale. This means recalling product from the supply-chain and publicly asking the consumers to bring any product back as well. Understanding when a withdrawal or recall is needed is key and this requires a defined internal communication plan.

Incident team

Setting up an incident team who are trained and understand what their role involves and what they need to do is key. Having a team which are well practiced, so they’re ready if the worst is to happen is also essential.


Contingency plans

One of the main aims of putting the required emergency processes in place, is to create contingency plans. Understanding what could go wrong, what impact it would have and therefore, what back up plans are required is a must.
