Automation and Product Liability Insurance

At the recent AGM of the International Union of Aerospace Insurers (IUAI) in Bengaluru in June 2015, as part of the product liability panel, we gave a presentation of the future new technologies within the SES (Single European Sky-SESAR programme) and the capabilities of these technologies to change the current allocation of risk and liabilityamong the various operators in the aviation sector. In particular, some of the most important technologies which will be implemented once SES comes into operation were examined in an attempt to understand whether such technologies will change the current position with regards allocation of responsibility and subsequently insurance obligations.
