Example of product safety project (lighters)
Our firm advised a manufacturer of lighters and the professional association to which he belongs in the context of the adoption of the European Commission’s decision 2006/502 on lighters.
This decision requires all Member States of the European Union to take measures to ensure that only child-resistant lighters are placed on the market and to prohibit the placing on the market of novelty lighters.
We have actively participated in the drafting of Decision 2006/502 in the context of public consultations organized by the European Commission.
We managed to exempt the lighters of our client and of its partners from the scope of this Decision.
