Paper Abstract

Product liability can be a major issue with the commercialization of any technology in introducing it to the marketplace. Proper planning and execution of a product design, development, test, and manufacturing process, in conjunction with an experienced legal council, are necessary to avoid unnecessary liability exposure or to mitigate the effects of lawsuits if and when they occur. The involvement of corporate management in the principles of safety, quality, and a disciplined team approach will serve a company well in this unique market. This paper presents ten areas for product development teams to consider as they proceed with the design, development, test, manufacturing, and support of law enforcement and corrections products.
