French term or phrase: procedure d'alerte
the "Council of Eur. F>E Legal Dict." gives: "procedure enabling an autitor or works council to call for explanations from the managers when the economic position of a business appears precarious."
Anyone have any suggestions for something more concise?

alarm procedure


Explanation:
"alarm" for "alerte" is very close to the sense of the original as it indicates that a warning signal is being sounded. "Warning procedure" soudns heavier but may work in context. Depending on how creative your context allows, then maybe even "red light" procedure might work.
