Product Regulation & Liability

Applicability of Rome II in Product Liability Matters
France | March 06 2008

Rome II and the Hague Convention contain choice-of-law rules regarding product liability matters. However, whereas Rome II governs all types of non-contractual claim, the convention focuses exclusively on product liability matters. Therefore, it is likely that when Rome II enters into force in France on January 11 2009, coordination issues will arise between the two.
