Product liability—corrective actions—checklist

This Checklist sets out the key issues when dealing with a product liability or safety matter which requires a corrective action, such as a product recall. When considering corrective action relating to a product liability or safety issue, it is advisable to have reference to the government-backed Code of Practice (PAS 7100) that was produced by the Office for Product Safety and Standards (OPSS) in combination with the British Standards Institution (BSI), the UK's national standards body, and sponsored by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). While the guidance contained in the Code of Practice is not legally binding, BEIS has indicated that it expects compliance with the spirit and letter of the Code of Practice.
