English translation:reviews of the distribution chain, beginning with the point of sale or service
Explanation:
The term "traceback" denotes the process of reviewing, in reverse, every step in the distribution chain responsible for getting a particular product from the producer to the consumer. For example, if a product is found to be contaminated, a traceback investigation may be used in an attempt to identify the source of the contamination.
