The global movement of products is a reality for most companies, large and small, with components and products ending up in jurisdictions far away – and often far different – from their own. With these realities comes the need to address the possibility that somewhere in the chain of supply or distribution, product safety may be compromised and corrective action may be required.  To help your business navigate the requirements in such a scenario, we have recently published the fourth edition of our Global Product Recall Handbook. Baker McKenzie’s Global Product Recall Handbook is a user‑friendly reference guide to product recall laws and regulations for consumer products around the world. The Handbook offers you:

  • summarized and integrated information about product recall laws and related regulatory standards in 45 countries;
  • coverage of general consumer products as well as a focus on the healthcare, food and drink and motor vehicle industries;
  • a dedicated Dynamic Publisher site and accompanying mobile app;
  • the collected advice of lawyers throughout Baker McKenzie, from 7,000 internationally experienced lawyers across 77 offices, including 36 of the world’s largest economies.
