The debate surrounding 3D printing is forcing legislators and regulators to rethink a broad range of legal issues, from patents and copyrights to liability and certification and standardisation. So how can we best achieve that laws and regulations effectively enable the unprecedented and sheer unlimited possibilities offered by 3D printing and additive manufacturing? Regulatory issues are becoming more and more of a pressing concern for companies and experts involved with 3D printing and additive manufacturing. In Europe it is clear that regulatory issues related to 3D printing will be high on the agenda of the Parliament and Commission.
But how will this affect the industry, and what does it mean for the business opportunities and challenges? This seminar will give you answers on questions around these aspects.
