On 29 April 2014, the new Belgian law on collective redress was published in the Official Gazette. The new statute raises significant issues for product liability claims. Our update offers a general overview of the new law and of the principles governing product liability, including the Product Liability Directive 85/374/EEC of 25 July 1985. We will also analyze their interaction.
