Dear take-e-way customers,
At the threshold of the third decade of the new millennium, product responsibility has now reached a crossroads.
With legislators constantly enacting new or amended regulations with increasing frequency, and market players having less and less time to integrate these regulations into their operational processes, legislators are failing to eliminate known points of conflict and to take advantage of opportunities to reduce bureaucracy. An increasing mass of independent and partly contradictory regulations in combination with language barriers and partly large scope for interpretation, not to mention administrative complexity, are meeting with time constraints, financial (and, above all, human) capacity and acceptance limits.
Conversely, there is a media-savvy phalanx of supranational institutions that subject both enterprises as well as policymakers to close scrutiny with immense public impact, unveiling system errors and unachieved goals.
Dealers, manufacturers and importers are faced with unequal competition from all those free riders who benefit from lower costs and higher sales due to non-compliance with statutory parameters and offer unsafe products at the same time. In the final analysis, those players acting in conformity with the law can no longer hold their own in the market, rendering product responsibility absolutely absurd.
Ultimately, consumers cannot rely on the protective effect of numerous laws and regulations and must establish at their own risk which products they wish to opt for.
take-e-way and the association VERE e.V. bring together the participants of many and various interest groups and the present hot topics on a day and at a location to foster the exchange of views in order to approach the following decade of product responsibility in a constructive and solution-oriented way. We would very much appreciate and look forward to your support by participating personally in the joint dialogue with political and government representatives.
