AHK Legal Round Table - Product liability regimes in the GCC, Dubai

Alexander & Partner Rechtsanwälte and Legal Consultants and the German Emirati Joint Council for Industry & Commerce (AHK) cordially invite you to the upcoming AHK Legal Network Event - a seminar on

Product liability regimes in the GCC – liability management, notification and recall

Product liability laws are the sharpest sword of customer protection regimes. They allow customers to hold any person or entity in the supply chain liable without proving negligence or intent. Furthermore, product liability laws require manufactures, distributors and seller to observe certain obligations to safeguard the public from flaws in and inherent dangers posed by their products including duties to notify and recall. Non-compliance may result in significant penalties, including fines, revocation of licenses and business closure.

This seminar aims to provide an overview of the key features of the different product liability regimes of the GCC-Region, outline common themes and highlight differences between the domestic product liability laws of the region and offer some guidance for how to address possible liability incidences.“
