Product Liability: The Law and Its Implications for Risk Management
Recent developments in product liability law are of great significance for manufacturers, distributors and consumers. Britain and the rest of the EEC have adopted a no-fault or strict liability concept, similar to that operating in the United States, so that, following the Consumer Protection Act 1987, a victim of a defective product no longer need establish negligence by the producer to succeed in a claim for compensation.
