"The GS1 Australia Recall portal is the first online recall portal to be certified by HACCP Australia as effective and suitable for businesses that operate a HACCP based Food Safety Programme. Issuing a recall or withdrawal notification with GS1 Australia Recall is simple, fast and inexpensive."
In the event of a recall, data gathered using the right technology can be used with the GS1 Australia Recall portal for a seamless, efficient recall. Using software such as Package Code Management can avoid incorrect coding and labelling, incorporating advanced inspection systems so you can check, detect and respond quickly to problems and avoid production-line recalls and withdrawals. To further reduce risk the right technology can enable quick, easy retrieval of required data for the supply chain.

"In complicated trading environments, duplicated processes and the volume of communications make recalls and withdrawals difficult to manage. A common communication platform such as the GS1 Australia Recall portal simplifies this process for all stakeholders, creating visibility through standardisation of data, the capture of an audit trail and consolidated reporting."
