Torts & Product Liability Issues
Wednesday, January 12, 2022 at 1:00 pm EST
A failure to meet safety compliance and regulatory obligations can undo the herculean efforts to surmount supply chain challenges and get products into the US. Our Products Liability and Regulatory Compliance lawyers will discuss the impacts of current efforts by regulators to police product safety at the ports, the expectations of federal safety regulators at the ports and how to use compliance documentation to speed the process when products have been stopped for inspection. This discussion will cover activities at CPSC, NHTSA, EPA and FDA. The panel will also discuss the challenge of counterfeit products and parts and how safety can be a lever to stop counterfeits. Given the increased costs of shipping, downstream recovery opportunities may help alleviate some of the monetary pressures and the panel will discuss these opportunities as well as the contract clauses that can allocate risks appropriately when things do go wrong.
Speakers: Rebecca Chaney, John Fuson, Cheryl Falvey, Warren Lehrenbaum, Carolyn Wagner
