Records of all client and staff communication through these arrangements shall be recorded within an ‘On-Call Diary’ he always carries with him.

Details entered into the diary shall confirm the caller / Company, as well as purpose of the call.

In instances when decisions have been made and agreed they shall also be recorded, together with any agreed responsibilities and / or timescales involved.

Once back in the office the Managing Director shall review the ‘On-Call Diary’, such that pertinent aspects of the Company’s Management System shall be applied, forms completed, and records retained for future reference and audit purposes.

At times when the Managing Director is not available 24 x 7, he shall make suitable arrangements such that the role for the ‘On-Call Diary’ is allocated to another competent staff member.
