Civil liability – adapting liability rules to the digital age and artificial intelligence

Investment in and societal acceptance of emerging technologies require legal certainty and trust. Current rules on products ensure that producers compensate consumers for damage caused by defective products.

This initiative proposes to adapt this framework to take account of developments linked to the move towards a circular and digital economy on liability for damage caused by new and refurbished products. The initiative will also address challenges brought about by artificial intelligence.
