Do you ask your supplier to sign a release of liability for the products you are buying from them?

Thank you.

It’s a good practice to have a release of liability form signed by your supplier. This form can help protect you from any legal issues that may arise from the use of the products you are buying from them. A release of liability form is a legal document that someone signs in which they agree that they will not hold you legally responsible for future harm that they experience or that they will not pursue any further claims against you for the harm they have already experienced resulting from a past incident .

However, it’s important to note that the specific requirements for a release of liability form may vary depending on your jurisdiction and the nature of the products you are buying. It’s best to consult with a lawyer who specializes in this area to ensure that you have all the necessary legal protections in place.


It is common for companies to include liability clauses in their contracts and agreements with suppliers.

Releasing liability typically means that one party agrees not to hold the other party responsible for certain types of damages or issues that may arise in the course of their business relationship.

However the enforceability in countries such as China may be still limited.
