Successfully Defending Potential Enforcement Action

1 Day Events, SOFHT Breakfast Club
11 Dec

Complying with consumer protection legislation, brand protection and avoiding legal action are all key drivers for the food industry. However there are instances where even the most sophisticated system has not been operating correctly or new legal requirements have been overlooked or misinterpreted and a problem has arisen that has attracted the attention of an enforcement authority.

Getting involved in a protracted investigation can be labour intensive, demanding attention that could be used in improving your day-to-day business and if it is not something that you have experience of, or are confident in handling, it can be a worrying time.

 A co-operative and informative approach to liaising with enforcement officers along with a systematic approach to collating information and informing the officer can go a long way to reassuring them of your intentions and indicating that you are taking appropriate steps.

 David Hetherington of Higgs and Sons Solicitors will provide advice on what to do should formal action be instigated, how to respond to a request for a PACE interview, what to be aware of and how not to incriminate yourself or your company, highlighting some simple but effective approaches to dealing with formal action.
