Product Liability & Consumer Safety Investigation Panel

It can be confusing to navigate Australia’s product liability laws, as they are a mixture of common law and Federal and state legislation. How do you create a culture where potential issues are escalated in an efficient manner? What strategies do you use to investigate both internal and consumer issues?  Topics of discussion include:

  • Determining what qualifies as a safety defect
  • Responsibilities to inform
  • Product recall pitfalls
