The aim of the hearing was to hear the views of stakeholders (business and consumers associations) and academia on the need to review the Product Liability Directive and on related challenges in the new digital age. It allowed participants to present their views on whether the overall liability regime is adequate to facilitate the uptake of the new technologies, and to address the matter from different perspectives.

It also offered the opportunity to hear the Commission's conclusions of its evaluation work and results achieved in the Expert group on liability and new technologies together with a presentation of further plans in this regard.
