The European Commission published two draft instruments, a proposed new Product Liability Directive (DPLD) as well as a draft AI Liability Directive (DAILD), on 28 September 2022.

The ELI Feedback was prepared by the ELI Team, under the leadership of Prof Dr Bernhard Koch and Prof Dr Jean-Sébastien Borghetti and chaired by ELI’s Scientific Director, Prof Dr Christiane Wendehorst.

The ELI Feedback is based on prior ELI work in this field, most notably the ELI Draft of a Revised Product Liability Directive. While welcoming developments, suggestions are included on how the proposals can be further improved. ELI hopes that these are found to be constructive and welcomes further dialogue on the subject.

The webinar aims to continue the dialogue on the reform of the Product Liability Directive.
