PRODUCT RECALL ^TOP^
The explosion of premium sourcing gifts satisfies the demand of "in and off" pack rewards, but awareness of quality standards has caused many promotions to implode resulting in the promotion having to be recalled.
Promoting to children has always been a sensitive issue, and the demand for more innovative premiums, often manufactured the other side of the world, exposes promoters to a risk that these items will not match consumer expectations of quality.
Should premiums have to recalled, enormous losses could be claimed against promoters and their agents for crisis management, recalling product, loss of profit and third party claims from distributors and consumers.
EIB has developed a product recall and financial loss policy specifically for these eventualities, that can be bought annually, or for specific campaigns.
Cover includes :
- Reasonable third party cover for
- Crisis Management, Advertising and Helplines.
- Consumer Injury.
- Distributors loss of profit.
- Distributors expenses.
- Replacement of product.
- Loss of Profit replacement of premiums.
- Collection of Stock,
- Transportation disposal.
USA, U.K, European and Australian safety standards set a minimum quality threshold, but in the hands of a child, your premium could be put to unimagined tests.
Promoters and agents can purchase cover for each promotion so that the policy covers your individual requirements.
The policy provides insurance above and beyond Professional Indemnity cover, and is the only feasible protection when using new or overseas suppliers, whose financial security may be unknown.
OVER REDEMPTION ^TOP^
Over redemption insurance protects promoters from the risk of too many people responding to the promotion campaigns.
Our policy will pay for the additional costs of redemption allowing you to concentrate on effective creative solutions.
Campaigns have to embrace new ideas and be increasingly seductive to compete in this market place, but this exposes brands to crippling costs of over redemption, and a high profile disaster.
