Gap Assessment to PAS 7100 – The Product Recall Code of Practice
The government’s Office for Product Safety and Standards’ Code of Practice (PAS 7100) is a code for consumer product safety recall in the UK. RQA can offer your business a gap assessment against this Code.
The RQA consultant will spend one day at your location reviewing your company’s product safety incident plan / product recall plan as well as your company’s recall readiness and comparing it against the Code. This will include:
- Senior Management Commitment
- Product Recall Team Capabilities and Experience
- Traceability Capability
- Product Safety Monitoring
- Notification of Authorities
- Risk Assessment Capability
- Decision Making
- Incident Management Process
- Product Notices
At the end of the benchmarking exercise, the RQA consultant will prepare a report identifying areas for further development. Where applicable, a certificate will be issued stating the Company is compliant with the Code of Conduct. There will also be the opportunity for the consultant to provide advice in any area of the product recall process whilst with you.
