The second European directive that impacts significantly on liability for products is the Directive on certain aspects of the sale of consumer goods and associated guarantees enacted in May 1999, which is referred to as the Consumer Guarantees Directive or the 1999 Directive. This chapter looks first at very broad differences between the Product Liability and Consumer Guarantees Directives; then at the debates in France and the UK concerning how the Consumer Guarantees Directive should be implemented; and finally at the substantive legal impact of this Directive on French and on English law.
