Previously, the consumer had to prove it whenever a risky situation occurred with the products. However, according to the New Product Liability Law, if an accident occurs due to the product concerned or one of the EU countries claims that the product does not comply with the requirements of the tests, ie it is not safe enough, the manufacturer must prove that he has taken all the precautions.
It should be kept in mind that incorrect or incomplete testing may cause serious damage to manufacturers. The manufacturer is responsible for the product he produces.
