Online Debate (Zoom) – 24 November 2021 – 12:00 – 13:30 CET
This lunch-time debate will discuss the main product safety challenges consumers face when shopping online. Considering digitalisation and market globalisation as well as the increase of connected products, is a modernisation of the current legal framework necessary?
The ongoing revision of the General Product Safety Directive will be debated. Is there a need for further measures? Are online marketplaces sufficiently covered by the ongoing reform?
The event will provide a platform for exchange of insights, views and ideas between representatives of the European Commission, legal practice, industry and the consumer community.
The debate will be opened by:
|Kristyna Deiberova, Team Leader for the Revision of the General Product Safety Directive, DG Justice and Consumers, European Commission, Brussels
|Rod Freeman, Partner, Cooley LLP, London
|Sylvia Maurer, Head of the Department for Sustainability and Safety, BEUC – The European Consumer Organisation, Brussels
|Anastasia Patta, Course Director - Private Law, ERA
