The Cooley team are developing a series of short tipsheets that will give you a brief introduction into key areas of international products law. We’ll be taking a close look at the legislation that makes up the EU’s robust safety and liability legal framework as well as a range of new legislative proposals that promise to shake up the existing legal landscape. We’ll be explaining who and/or what it will apply to, providing a summary of why it matters and giving directions to any key sources of further information. In the coming weeks, we will be covering the Goods Package, the New Deal for Consumers, General Product Safety Directive, Product Liability Directive, European Accessibility Act, the EU’s Green Deal proposals and more… If there is a topic you would like us to cover, please reach out to one of the team!
