Product Safety Representative in the Automobile Industry

Course introduction:
Product safety and product liability have been matters of great importance in the automobile
industry and automobile supply sector since time began. Countries world-wide have specified
these questions in national and also international legislation, which has been adopted in
contractually specified, specific requirements of the automobile industry. These apply not only
to the OEMs themselves but also along the entire supply chain (in the VW Group, for example
in "Formel Q"). Supplier companies are required to appoint and employ a so-called Product
Safety Representative.

The objective of this measure is to detect liability risks in the whole of the product creation
process by targeted technical expertise, to eliminate or at least minimize any such risks in the
product development and to control them by means of the development of the process. The
Product Safety Representative is intended as the expert contact for management and
customers and to act as the legal representative in the event of product liability cases and
observation of the product within the company itself and in the market. In this the Product
Safety Representative must provide coordination both in terms of legal regulations and
customer-specific requirements to a reasonable degree.
