This 3rd edition describes product liability laws in 24 countries of the Asia-Pacific region including all of the large economies and populations. Expanded to cover Macau, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, Sri Lanka, and the US Affiliated Jurisdictions in the Pacific, these jurisdictions offer additional insights, showing the various influences and distinct legal cultures which pervade the law of the region. A chapter on insurance in the region is also included.
The product liability laws of the Asia-Pacific region are characterised by diversity. A mosaic of legal rights exists under contract, tort and statute in most countries. In many of these jurisdictions, product liability is only just beginning to emerge as a significant body of law and with many countries going through a period of economic development; some legislatures are only now beginning to recognise the need to address consumer protection and the legal liability of manufacturers in the region. The range of approaches to product liability is a reflection of the multiplicity of legal systems in the region.
Widespread reform of product liability laws has taken place in the Asia-Pacific region since the 2nd edition was published. Part of satisfying a foreign client's needs, is understanding the legal environment in which they operate. With the globalisation of the commercial and legal marketplaces, legal practitioners must have knowledge of other legal systems in which their clients’ operate. The reach of product liability has become worldwide in the 21st century. This book provides in one volume that knowledge.
