UK product safety regulation: an update on proposed reforms

Please note this webinar has now taken place.

We are delighted to be hosting a webinar which addresses the latest developments that are set to fundamentally change the UK’s product safety regulatory landscape, and how these are significant to businesses and their insurers.

Kennedys’ global product safety and product liability partner, Sarah-Jane Dobson, together with other product safety experts Thomas PanterLouise ForrestMyunghoon Paik and Miran Bahra will consider the proposed reforms of the UK’s mainstay product safety regime and other key legal and regulatory developments in respect of product safety and compliance matters, including:

  • UK government’s proposals for a “fundamental reform” of the consumer product safety regulatory framework, including enhanced product recall processes.
  • Development of the UK-specific product compliance and safety regimes post-Brexit, to include the changes to adoption of the UKCA conformity mark, and the indefinite recognition of the EU’s CE mark.
  • Overview of recent UK product safety regulator’s enforcement activity, including increased focus on enforcement policies as proposed as part of overarching reform.
  • Summary of other relevant complementary developments flagged as part of the product safety reform agenda, including consumer protection/product liability and technology/AI.

This webinar is relevant to stakeholders across all sectors, including manufacturers, suppliers, importers and exporters, in-house counsel, insurers, claims managers, underwriters, academics and industry disrupters.
