It is common for manufacturers to concern themselves primarily with the design and production of their product, and devote significantly less attention to their regulatory duties after the products have been sold. In this webinar, Attorneys Kenneth Ross and George Soule, both of Bowman and Brooke LLP, discuss manufacturers’ duties after the sale of their products and provide tips for successful implementation and execution of recalls.
This webinar will address:
- the post-sale duty to warn;
- recall regulations in the United States and Canada
- the contents of recall communications; and
- recall strategy that will strengthen your defense position in the event of a claim.
