Principles of Due Diligence
Principles of Due Diligence

This white paper explains the concept and principles of due diligence. It firstly identifies its importance in terms of providing a basis for a legal defence against potential litigation arising from complaints about contamination found in food products. It then goes on to detail the thought processes behind making the right selection of a product quality inspection system to meet these needs.

The white paper can be used as a checklist to evaluate the various metal detectors and x-ray inspection systems on the market. If a quality inspection system under consideration does not include some or all of the features identified, then it is likely to indicate a weakness in its ability to support a full due diligence defence.

Furthermore, selecting a product quality inspection system which has been designed with due diligence in mind will provide the highest levels of consumer and brand protection. 

This new white paper looks at:

  • What is Due Diligence and Duty of Care
  • Different Food safety frameworks such as HACCP and GFSI
  • Risks of physical contamination
  • The 16 Critical product inspection concerns and their solutions
  • The Components of a failsafe inspection programme which will ensure due diligence
