Hello out there!
IFS PACsecure Version 1.0 has recently been updated and a new procedure is required in Ver. 1.1 per below. I'm wondering if anyone out there has come across or developed a procedure for this requirement that they wouldn't mind sharing? Thanks in advance for any additional insight.
4.20 Product Fraud
4.20.1 A documented product fraud vulnerability assessment shall be undertaken on all raw
materials (raw materials, additives, inks, adhesives, solvents, wrapping, materials, rework),
product formula /configuration, processes (including outsourced) packaging and labelling, to
determine the risk of fraudulent activity in relation to substitution, mislabelling, adulteration
The criteria considered within the vulnerability assessment shall be defined.
4.20.2 A documented product fraud mitigation plan shall be developed, with reference to the
vulnerability assessment, and implemented to control any identified risk. The methods of control
and monitoring shall be defined and implemented.
4.20.3 In the event of increased risks, the vulnerability assessment and mitigation plan shall
be reviewed and amended accordingly. Otherwise all the vulnerability assessments, shall be reviewed
at least annually.
– Has the company a documented product fraud vulnerability assessment?
– Has the company identified fraud-susceptible raw material groups/product groups in the
– If yes, which main fraud-susceptible raw material groups/product groups have been identified and
for what reason?
