EU Products Law - Second edition

A Hogan Lovells Guide to Product Compliance, Product Conformity, Product Integrity, Product Liability and Product Safety for the Automotive Industry (by Dr. Sebastian Polly with contributions from our Global Products Law Practice).

Product compliance, conformity, integrity, liability and safety require utmost attention, particularly in the automotive industry. They are imperative not only to ensure product marketability but also to protect the company, its brands, its products, its markets and its decision makers from unnecessary legal risks. Accordingly, they are vital for a company's reputation and success.

Legal challenges during the entire product life-cycle require a holistic approach with elaborated internal processes. This is particularly true because civil, criminal and public law provisions in the EU have become increasingly complex and extensive.

Hogan Lovells is a leading automotive law firm with vast global products law experience and expertise. This guide provides a summary of the legal landscape as well as practical guidance, particularly on how to prevent or handle a product crisis. It focusses on helping decision makers and stakeholders from all types of automotive companies, particularly from all departments of OEMs, suppliers and service providers.

The book consists of three parts:

•   Part 1: The EU product compliance, product conformity, product integrity, product liability and product safety landscape

•   Part 2: Market-by-market guidance on a selection of key jurisdictions (with contributions from our Global Products Law Practice)

•   Part 3: Compilation of main EU Product Compliance

The book includes contributions from Hogan Lovells Products Law teams around the world including Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Hongkong, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, United Kingdom and United States.

It is available on amazon and epubli.
