Product Liability Law and Product Safety Law

The product safety law ensures that consumers are protected against damages due to defective products in an environment which is shaped by more and more complex technologies. The adherence of numerous standards and technical specifications, which should secure the best possible safety, requires a comprehensive legal and technical know-how. It is also possible to use the product safety law via the detour of the law against unfair competition (UWG) also as weapon in competition. Every competitor can prevent the sale of unsecure products by a competitor.
