Event summary

How to manage and avert a crisis during a product safety regulatory investigation.

The regulator is on your doorstep, asking inspect your business and potentially seize products. Why is this important? What impact could this have on your business? And how would you manage and try to avert a crisis in this scenario?
You are invited to a seminar with our Cooley experts, to find out.

Whilst product safety authorities in Europe have long-held powers of investigation and enforcement, in practice historically, these have been relatively rarely used. Times are changing, and we are seeing product safety authorities increasingly beginning to deploy their powers in unprecedented ways. Not only are regulators investigating with more scrutiny, but dawn raids and mandatory disclosure orders are now also becoming a common feature of product safety and compliance investigations; and businesses need to be prepared. Join our experts for seminar and case study on crisis management to learn the latest on managing and averting a crisis during product safety and compliance investigations, followed by networking and drinks.

This seminar will provide updates and practical tips from our experienced team on:
•    Why the regulatory environment is changing in the UK and throughout Europe
•    The limits of legal privilege protection in product safety matters and internal investigations
•    Responding to disclosure requests
•    Individual exposure of directors and managers
•    Practical tips for preparing a plan to ensure readiness
•    Do's and don'ts when the regulatory comes knocking
