[THE INVESTOR] Samsung Electronics plans to publish a white paper on last year’s unprecedented Galaxy Note 7 recall in a bid to prevent future incidents, Chosun Biz reported on May 31.
“A white paper on the Note fiasco will be published soon,” a Samsung executive was quoted as saying in the report.
Note 7 phones are being charged for fire tests at Samsung's research lab.
According to the report, researchers and working-level officials at Samsung and its battery-making sister firm Samsung SDI are leading the white paper project, while some officials from the chief risk management office, a new team set up after the Note recall to oversee quality and safety issues, are also joining the project.
The white paper is expected to look into everything about the recall, including research and development, parts, production, testing, production, marketing and sales. Details of specific cases will be offered for better analysis.
The report said the white paper will be shared with a limited number of high-ranking executives due to security reasons.
Samsung is preparing to release a refurbished version of the Note 7, called the Galaxy Note FE, as early as June before its successor, Note 8, debuts in August or September.
