Manufacturing Laws are those regulations and statutes that relate to the manufacturing industry. Product Liability: A major issue for some manufacturers, particularly automakers, is dealing with alleged product defects. Consolidation: Because of the changing face of manufacturing, consolidation has been a trend for manufacturers for a number of years. As such, manufacturing laws can also be considered to bleed into the areas of corporate formation, governance, and mergers. Advertising and Marketing: Another area manufacturers often have to be aware of is the law pertaining to marketing and advertising their products. Employment and Labor:No product can reach the market without the labor of human beings. That means there is always an opportunity for issues related to employment and labor.
