Newstead Authors Second Article in Series on Product Recalls
Partner Alison Newstead has published an article in the June 2012 issue of The In-House Lawyer titled “Product recall: how well have you prepared.” Among other matters, Newstead recommends that product manufacturers review their recall policies and plans, establish an incident management team, train personnel, ensure that supply chain contracts adequately address recall risks, and assess the adequacy of their product traceability systems. She concludes “Once a recall is underway, speed is of the essence. In such a dynamic environment with many players, the potential for chaos is huge, but risks can be minimised with a robust and effective recall plan, and forward planning.” To read the article, please click here.
