Product safety and product responsibility


Product safety has become a main topic especially within the EU and USA, where the authorities are systematically registering accidents which has led to the passing of the EF-Directive concerning Product Safety and the EF-Directive on Product Responsibility.

The authorities of the member countries are issuing an increasing number of sales bans and/or requirements of withdrawal of products on the market.

National legislations are also getting passed that have a big impact on the construction of furniture, for example the French law regarding child products, including furniture.
