The Consumer Protection Act relates, in the main, to consumer contracts, however it may be used in business contracts.

Under the Act anyone can claim against the manufacturer, irrespective of whether it was negligence.

Remember, if a supplier (or a manufacturer) sells goods or services under an exclusion clause, it must comply with the requirements of the Unfair Contract Terms Act ie the supplier (or manufacturer) cannot exclude its liability in terms of death, personal injury or damages caused by negligence.
