Consumer Protection Law of 2019: Broadening the Liability of Manufacturers, Wholesalers, and Distributors for Defective Goods
The Consumer Protection Law of 2019 was promulgated in early 2019 to improve consumer protection in Myanmar. The law seeks to regulate the liability of manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors and others involved in the supply chain for defective goods, which until now has been largely regulated by colonial era tort law which in large part was un-enforced and insufficient to appropriately protect the rights of consumers in the modern economy. The presentation will discuss the new regime governing liability for defective goods and will highlight certain risks present in the broad wording of the law which all business involved in the supply chain should be informed of to effectively control risk.
