The introduction of European product legislation has serious implications for non-EU manufacturers and importers as well as manufacturers located within the EU.
If damage or injury is sustained as a result of the use of a product the user may hold the manufacturer, authorised representative, agent or importer liable. European legislation allows users of defective products to claim damages as a result of injury as well as consequential damages.
It should also be pointed out that European legislation also provides for the provision of sale of defective or non-compliant product, and for serious cases fines, and confiscation of product.

Failure to comply with the EU product requirements leaves manufacturers open to claims for liability in the event that there are product failures.
