How to respond effectively to your due diligence requirements (DDS) ?
You might currently be facing the following issues:
Spending time applying and updating your risk analysis. In addition to the loss of time, what are the financial consequences in the event of a blockage in the supply of your goods?
You ʺmanuallyʺ take care of your risk management with classic office tools that are not suited to the task. Are you up to date and on time on collecting documents from your suppliers? Have you estimated the resources mobilised by your current method?
It is difficult for you to keep your due diligence system up to date. Do you know which products have a high level of risk today ? Is your system user friendly for your employees and stakeholders?
An out-of-date risk analysis can have regulatory implications (infringements). How do you deal with late collection of expired documents or lack of mitigation for high-risk products?
