The consumer’s obligation of safety is provided for by consumer law. The products must, under normal or foreseeable conditions of use, present the safety which one can legitimately expect and not endanger human health.
The person responsible for placing the product on the market must inform the consumer of any risks inherent in the product and must adopt measures to assess the risks and control them.
Certain products are subject to specific legislative or regulatory provisions reinforcing this general safety obligation.
