Having read the report on Liability for Artificial Intelligence, Orgalim is pleased to provide our views on the future Guidance Document to the Product Liability Directive (85/374/EEC).
The Product Liability Directive, thanks to its technology-neutral provisions, has created legal certainty while enabling technological innovation over the past years. We do not see a need to revise the Directive at this point in time. We believe that the Directive is fit for purpose and will continue to meet its objective of setting a balanced and fair framework, in terms of liability, for damage caused by a defective product. The upcoming European Commission guidelines, planned for the first semester of 2020, will play a crucial role in clarifying the scope of the Directive for smart products.
