Legal frame­work as regards pro­duct lia­bi­li­ty and data protection

Busi­ness Brunch on 31 March 2017 with Phil­ipp Reusch

The con­fi­gu­ra­ti­on of sup­p­ly chains within the com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on that takes place bet­ween machi­nes invol­ves con­side­ra­ti­ons con­nec­ted with con­tract law. Event today, com­pa­nies are forced to crea­te a com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy basis which imple­ments the legal requi­re­ments. At the same time, sin­ce the Euro­pean Parliament’s draft bill on robot law at the very latest, the legis­la­ti­on has been moving towards a spe­cial kind of law that we would like to pre­sent to you.

Seve­ral legal­ly rele­vant ques­ti­ons ari­se from this:

  • To what requi­re­ments does heed need to be paid in the design of con­tracts with suppliers?
  • Are the­re any requi­re­ments rela­ting to the sel­ec­tion of the supplier?
  • Who do the the data from the sup­p­ly chain belong to? Who is allo­wed to uti­li­se them, and how?

Apart from that, IT secu­ri­ty is beco­ming more and more a field of its own, along­side the con­side­ra­ti­on of safe­ty in the sen­se of pro­duct safe­ty. And this is par­ti­cu­lar­ly the case in the lia­bi­li­ty law con­text of the Ger­man Pro­duct Lia­bi­li­ty Act (Prod­HaftG).

We look for­ward to dis­cus­sing this topic with you at our busi­ness brunch on 31 March 2017 in Augsburg.
