The production of the future will also be determined by so-called 3D printing.

However, the introduction of 3D printing is also leading to changes in the value-added chain and will fundamentally reshape the traditional process of designing, manufacturing and marketing of products. As a result, this production method is increasingly moving into the legal focus. The term “manufacturer” becomes less tangible when products can be manufactured by anyone according to a certain template. This is followed by the question of liability for a 3D-printed product, in particular for printing according to third-party construction plans. In addition, new challenges arise for quality control when the previous secure and reliable fabrication is converted.

The speech deals with these liability implications of 3D printing.
