Section 4 of the Consumer Protection Act 1987 provides a number of defences to liability which mirror those provided by Article 7 of Council Directive 85/374/EEC (the Product Liability Directive). By s 1(1), the Act and hence the defences must be construed so as to give effect to Article 7 and consistently with it. The defences cover such matters as:

Keywords:   ABPI view, Commission v United Kingdom, Consumer Protection Act 1987, ECJ infringement proceedings, European Commission Green Paper, European Commission reform proposals, Luxembourg, Member States derogating, Product Liability Directive, Rosselli Report, Rosselli study, Second report, Thalidomide case, Third Commission Report, Third Commission report, United States
