Liability Survey

Liability Surveys make liability issues more transparent and help to establish a structured basis for decisions relating to corporate risk management.   

Practically all companies, including manufacturing companies, service providers, high-tech specialists, Internet providers and agricultural enterprises, are confronted with numerous potential liabilities. The legal framework is becoming increasingly complex (more and more official product alerts and recalls), and in a damage event companies have to face ever more claims for compensation. In addition to preventing damage - particularly damage to people - the image and reputation of a company have to be protected as important values. Particularly damage to people or the environment and recalls of unsafe products are always widely reported in the media.

Establishing a clear basis for decision-making - being well prepared for risk situations 

Liability Surveys make it possible for companies to establish a clear and structured basis for internal risk management decisions. Potential liabilities are considered in a top-down approach, and measures to optimize risk situations are developed. Values which are essential to a company's success, such as its reputation, accordingly play an important role in the analysis. This enables a company to proactively take preparatory measures for scenarios which cannot be entirely prevented. An optimization of the overall risk situation also results in optimized ongoing risk costs.
