Loxwood Meadworks Due Diligence Code of Conduct (DDCOC) sets out the basic rules we will follow and the values that will guide our decisions. It also points us to a more detailed processes and procedures relating to the purchase and supply of alcoholic products.
The DDCOC is built on the premise of knowing your customer or supplier and the commercial transactions that will be involved. Supply chains are only as strong as the weakest link and the purpose of Loxwood Meadworks DDCOC is to prevent entering into commercial transactions with any illicit customer or supplier. The policy will aid in ensuring all customers and suppliers are regularly reviewed so any changes of activities are identified and the appropriate action taken.
Specific guidelines have been developed for customers and suppliers. All customers and suppliers must provide the required list of documents and completed questions for Loxwood Meadworks to undertake a risk assessment before any account is open. Loxwood Meadworks will only trade with a customer or supplier if they have passed the necessary risk assessment checks. Loxwood Meadworks will only work with suppliers in the alcohol industry who accept payment by bank transfer. Cash payments are not permitted.
Designated Accounts officer or another authorised member of the team will review the submitted information on a case-by-case basis and Danny Bacon will conduct the final sign off. Any customer or supplier who fails to pass the risk assessment will immediately have all transactions ceased pending review. If the review is unsatisfactory, the account will be closed indefinitely.
Regular reviews of customer and supplier information will be conducted by Accounts officer or another authorised member of the team and the final sign off will be conducted by Danny Bacon.
All initial checks and further reviews will be documented in the customer or supplier file and maintained on an ongoing basis. Reminders for checks should be logged.
The DDCOC will be implemented and maintained by Danny Bacon. All training of the DDCOC must be authorised by Danny Bacon and any changes in staff will undergo full training on the DDCOC. Part of the DDCOC is to ensure day-to-day checks are in place to identify transactions that may lead to fraud or involve goods on which duty may have been evaded. Checks in purchase order processing and customer orders are two areas where daily checks are performed.
