Recent decisions regarding so-called quasi-producers under the German Product Liability Act

June 2013

Hogan Lovells International Product Liability Review June 2013
This article examines the conditions needed for an organisation to qualify as a quasi-producer under Sec. 4 Para. 1 Sentence 2 ProdHaftG. This is important because quasi-producers can also be held responsible for damages caused by a particular product, even if they were not involved in the production process. The article considers the legal and practical impacts of the recent court decisions, as well as examines how parties can avoid qualifying as quasi-producers.
