Prepare a Risk Analysis
At the heart of the legislation is the duty of each company to carry out a risk analysis of the health risks the products represent and how the company will relate to this in terms of traceability.
The purpose of the analysis is to reduce / prevent risk through
- Withdrawal of products from the market, or
- Efficient notification or recall of products from consumer
This assumes that the parties are aware of the risks the products may pose and have a preparedness that ensures that they react quickly, correctly and effectively in unwanted incidents. A Risk Analysis should therefore be performed on new products based on an intended relevant incident, so that it can be implemented as quickly as possible should a real incident occur for the product.
The risk analysis consists of three elements that both the government and industry should work on in an equal way:
- Risk Assessment
- Risk Management
- Risk Communication
