British Standards

British Standards
Under the Consumer Protection Act 1987 (Part II) and the General Product Safety Regulations 1994, a product must be safe bearing in mind its use and other related criteria. Whilst not strictly a defence, compliance with relevant British Standards and product safety regulations made under the 1987 Act normally avoids the charge of a product being considered to be unsafe in law. It should be noted that compliance with British Standards or safety regulations is not a defence (although it may assist) in a civil law action for negligence or strict product liability. Consumer products are those which are intended for, or intended to be used by, consumers in their private capacity, as opposed to goods intended for commercial use.
