German term or phrase: präventiv erkannt
"Die Zusicherung der Einhaltung der Beteiligungsrechte durch die Leitung und Mutterhaus [...] muss präventiv erkannt und gegebenenfalls unter Hinzuziehung von Sachverständigen und Rechtsbeistand erwirkt werden."

This is from a report following a works council meeting with management representatives. Can anyone explain to me what is meant by "präventiv erkannt" here?

Many thanks
