Product safety law is always on the move. Whether it relates to the use of substances from the REACH and Biocidal Products Regulations, the Consumer Goods Ordinance or the relevant section of the Timber Regulation, or is part of the range of product safety law regulations under the German Product Safety Act (ProdSG) and the Radio Equipment Act (FuAG), which has been in force since 2017 – public law with regard to the placing of products on the market is subject to continual change.
This leads to various legal questions which we would like to examine:

  • distinction between consumer product and migration product
  • substantiation of labelling regulations by civil law judgements
  • labelling regulations under the FuAG
  • demarcation to the toy directive

We'd like to discuss these and other questions with colleagues from the legal departments of the companies concerned at our Business Brunch.
