In Thailand, products liability is covered under the Liability Arising from Damages from Unsafe Products Act of B.E. 2551 (2008) and which came into force on February 21, 2009. Before the enactment of the Unsafe Products Act, consumers injured by unsafe products generally only had recourse under the Civil and Commercial Code, which created the burden of having to prove negligence of the manufacturer or distributor or some other party in the supply chain. However, the Unsafe Products Act allows consumers to sue responsible parties in the supply chain on the basis of strict liability. At this time, there are no noteworthy Thai Supreme Court cases which have interpreted the Unsafe Products Act; however, a few important points of the law.

 

This Act offers consumers considerable protection given that it provides that ‘Business Operators’[1] are subject to a legislative regime whereby they can be held jointly liable to affected persons who have suffered 'damage' from 'unsafe products' which have been ‘sold, distributed to, dispensed or given to’ consumers, regardless of whether the damage was intentionally or negligently caused by the Business Operator(s).
