News AI Digital Health Interactions with the Medical Community Newsletter Product Liability Directive

Updated ex-post consumer protection legislation

Posted on 06.10.2022

On 28 September 2022, the EU Commission published two proposals updating and adding to the liability legislation. The revised Product Liability Directive seeks to adapt existing rules to the digital age, circular economy and new global value chains. The new AI Directive proposes new rules that would make creators of artificial intelligence-powered software and products responsible to pay for potential damages when people were harmed by such technologies. MedTech Europe will continue to engage with EU lawmakers on these topics. A recent position paper outlining MedTech Europe’s views can be found here.
