Product & Consumer Protection Life Sciences

Welcome to Mason Hayes & Curran LLP’s Product & Consumer Protection Mid-Year Review 2022.

In the six months since the publication of our 2021 Annual Review, advancement in the EU product and consumer protection law landscape has continued apace. There have been significant regulatory developments so far in 2022, with the coming into effect of the Enforcement and Modernisation Directive (EU) 2019/2161, otherwise known as the Omnibus Directive, and an increased focus on the proposed regulation of Artificial Intelligence. We review some of the key developments in 2022 to date and look ahead to future reform for the second half of 2022.

In this Review, we will consider key issues such as:

  • The EU’s proposed reform of the Product Liability Directive 85/374/EEC
  • Landmark reform of Irish consumer protection law proposed under the Consumer Rights Bill 2022
  • Collective Redress
  • The European Commission’s proposal for a common charger for electronic devices

We discuss these issues and much more and hope you enjoy the third edition of our Product & Consumer Protection Mid-Year Review.
