David Webber Senior Partner at PA Europe will be presenting at 3D printing event!

Senior Partner at PA Europe David Webber will discuss the question: “3D Printing – Is Regulation Coming?” with his audience during the LAW Session at the 3D printing Event.

3D Printing EventIs regulation coming? The simple answer is: YES. The only real question is when and what? 3D printing has been in the public spotlight for a few years now with both good and examples of its potential. While 3D printing is currently hyped to some extent, it is clear that it will have a significant impact on the economy and society. This development will give rise to a number of expected regulatory challenges, such as IPR, illegal use (3D printed guns), legal responsibility, standards, materials, health and safety, sustainability, ethics, health systems, skills and training, etc. For all of these challenges it is essential that policy makers and politicians in Europe understand what 3D printing entails; what it can mean for society and what its economic potential is.
