Since its implementation in March, 2001, the CGC (Consumer Goods Council) Crime Prevention Programme has notched up a number of successes, enabling retail chains to reduce shrinkage while also stimulating sales significantly. The Programme's most recent initiative is the introduction of an Employers' Reference Site (ERS) in conjunction with ID cards for personnel handling goods and operating within stores.
The database holds no information of a discriminatory nature on any individual.
All categories of individuals who work inside the stores (cleaners, security, maintenance, etc) will be required to conform to these requirements by the fourth quarter of 2005.
