The EU and the UK are currently seeing a tidal wave of change in the consumer protection, product safety, compliance, and liability space, with the introduction of new laws that introduce new compliance obligations for all participants in the supply chain, empower consumers and create a changing liability landscape, with the revision of product liability rules and the introduction of new class actions procedures.

Taken together, it is clear that this is going to be a transformative few years for stakeholders including online platforms, consumer product manufacturers, distributors and retailers.

This new virtual classroom seminar will offer an update on some key legislation that is likely to have an impact on all companies operating in this space, including the General Product Safety Regulation, new Product Liability Directive, Sale of Goods Directive and UK Product Safety Review. It will also offer guidance on the steps businesses need to be taking now to avoid being caught out further down the line as these laws begin to apply.

  • The cumulative effect on the risk of doing business in the EU and how stakeholders can mitigate these risks
