Risk of Product Recall

In this day and age, the manufacturing and selling of goods touches every aspect of society from factory employees to end consumers. Since the emphasis is always put on the protection of consumers’ rights and interests, product recall systems have been recognised and spread worldwide after being set up by U.S. government in the 1960s. Europe, Australia, Japan and many other developed countries have established mature recall systems as well.

Supervision from these governments, especially in U.S. and Canada, has played an increasing role in the era of global trade as more export companies have recall risk exposures. As our global economy becomes more interdependent, risk exposures will continue to grow and organisations’ will need product recall solutions to respond to their risks.

Compared with the routine recall endorsement based on product liability insurance, independent recall insurance allows organisations’ to file claims as potential risks are found, while recall endorsements may only go into effect after the loss occurs. Our risk management experts help the insured to build a recall plan that provides detailed procedures should a recall event occur. At the same time, our risk product recall experts will work with your team to minimise the negative impact on your brand and market share.

Product recall insurance protects the interests of the following parties:

  • Manufacturers
  • Packagers
  • Wholesalers
  • Retailers
  • The whole supply chain
