Legal development product safety and product liability

  • Switzerland


    The topic of product safety and product liability and its legislation was dealt with from different perspectives in the forum of the magazine Haftung und Versicherung (HAVE) in its edition 4/2018. The forum was chaired by Barbara Klett as editorial member of HAVE.

    Barbara Klett and Dominique Müller present their views on the legal development of the Product Liability Act and Product Safety Act within the framework of the forum and summarize the decisions of the Supreme Courts on the Product Liability Act and Product Safety Act issued to date with references to the doctrine released in this regard. They also shed light on issues of topical interest that arise in connection with the development of artificial intelligence.

    Finally, the authors also deal with the jurisprudence of the European Court of Justice and give an outlook on upcoming legislative changes at EU level in this area.
