PLF Meeting: Reforming the Product Liability Directive

Event Details

At this event, Mark Beamish, Legal and Policy Officer in DG GROW at the Commission gave us an update on the reform of the Product Liability Directive. This was then followed by a focus on the link between regulatory breaches and products claims, including whether there should be a presumption of defect in case of regulatory breaches akin to a 'follow-on action' in the competition law sphere. Dr Mihail Danov, University of Exeter, an expert on competition law, discussed the development of private enforcement by means of 'follow-on actions' in competition cases and consider the lessons which could be learned in the products sphere. There were comments also by Sarah Moore, Hausfeld and Noel Dilworth, Henderson Chambers.
