1. Which are the main laws governing product liability?


The Consumer Code is the main legal enactment regulating product liability and consumer rights; it deals inter alia with consumers’ access to goods and services, consumers’ rights, producers’ obligations, as well as the general rules applicable to non-governmental organisations and product security.

In addition, more detailed rules regarding the terms and circumstances when product liability is engaged are regulated by Law No. 449/2003 on selling products and ancillary warranties, Law No. 240/2004 on producers’ liability for damages resulting from defective products, Government Ordinance No. 21/1992 on consumers’ protection and Law No. 193/2000 on unfair clauses in contracts concluded between professionals and consumers. General norms governing tort and contractual liability as provided by the Civil Code supplement special legislation on product liability.
