New liability rules on products and AI to protect consumers and foster innovation

Since 28th September 2022, the Eurpopean  Commission has adopted two proposals to adapt liability rules to the digital age, circular economy and the impact of global value chains.


Firstly, it proposes to modernise the existing rules on the strict liability of manufacturers for defective products (from smart technology to pharmaceuticals). The revised rules will give businesses legal certainty so they can invest in new and innovative products and will ensure that victims can get fair compensation when defective products, including digital and refurbished products, cause harm.

Secondly, the Commission proposes a targeted harmonisation of national liability rules for AI, making it easier for victims of AI-related damage to get compensation.

The new rules will ensure that victims benefit from the same standards of protection when harmed by AI products or services, as they would if harm was caused under any other circumstances.
