Consumer products are increasingly subject to product incidents, with the potential for a product recall to be necessary. Therefore, it is vital that you have effective product recall plans and a communications strategy in place and put these to the test on a regular basis.
A key element of handling a recall is risk assessment. RQA can work with the manufacturer or importer in order to produce a robust RAPEX risk assessment. We can also verify and challenge an existing risk assessment developed by the manufacturer or other party
Business Continuity and Crisis Management are also key issues that those supplying consumer products need to understand and have plans in place for. RQA can assist you to ensure that you have all the plans in place to meet your supplier, insurance, and regulatory needs.
Supply Chain Risk Management is an important area for a consumer product manufacturer, or importer/distributor who applies their branding to a product. It is vital to understand where the components for your product are sourced from and the risks that these suppliers pose to your business continuity. RQA can offer you supply chain risk management advice and also train your people to audit suppliers.
