For the reporting of misconduct and deviations regarding product integrity, you can join the whistleblowing scheme. Within the whistle-blower scheme, your employees can report anonymously to Normec Foodcare to communicate misconduct and/or deviations.
We will record the notification and communicate with the management of the organisation concerned. By implementing a phased roadmap, the report will be processed. Firstly, we will carry out a thorough cause analysis, after which corrections and corrective measures will be taken to remove deviations regarding product integrity and their causes. In conclusion, it will be verified whether the correct measures have been taken.
AS part of a few requirements, it is now mandatory to have a whistleblowing scheme. This is mentioned in the draft version of BRC Global Standard for Food Safety version 8. It states that a procedure must be laid down in which the higher management must deal with whistleblowing reports.
An effective whistleblowing scheme has major benefits for your organisation. As soon as your organisation agrees with the whistle-blower scheme, an agreement is drawn up. This agreement stipulates that you effect, without undue delay, all necessary corrections and corrective measures. The reporter may not be subjected to any negative effects after reporting via the whistleblowing scheme.
