Reform of the Product Liability Directive ELI Project Team Advances Draft


The third Project Team meeting took place on 10 May 2022.

Participants continued their discussions on the revisions of the current Product Liability Directive (PLD). During this meeting, the Team focused on the definition of a ‘defective product’ as well as on the ‘liable economic operators’, among others. The Team will continue their discussions on 16 May 2022.

The project aims at improving the PLD, particularly in light of challenges brought about by the digital age, and at making it suitable for implementation at national level. The Team are producing a text that strives to strike a balance between the adequate distribution of risks between manufacturers and developers on the one hand and victims of defective products on the other.
