Pandemic Due Diligence

Epidemics and pandemics have the potential to bring businesses to a grinding halt. While COVID-19 is a prime example, it was not the first and will not be the last pandemic to have a serious impact on business continuity. Even local epidemics can bring businesses to their knees – particularly when they are unprepared. Our self-assessment enables you to evaluate your due diligence measures and discover your level of preparedness.

What is Pandemics Due Diligence?

In the context of pandemics, epidemics and other health crises, due diligence is taking every reasonable precaution to avoid causing harm to the health of employees, customers, business partners and the general public. It also includes making sure that your business is prepared and can be a reliable partner.

Liability & Due Diligence

Executives can be held legally responsible if they fail to implement adequate due diligence measures. Therefore, implementing preventative measures is not enough: businesses also need to be able to document the measures they have taken, and justify why they have taken these measures.
