Er worden steeds hogere eisen gesteld aan de technische informatie en communicatie over technologie en producten. Als een technische handleiding niet goed is, kan het een reden zijn voor een rechtszaak vanwege CE- of productaansprakelijkheid. Begeleidende documentatie bij een (export)product ziet men vaak als een noodzakelijk kwaad. Echter, volgens EU richtlijnen is het verplicht om documentatie (handleiding en/of gebruiksaanwijzingen) te leveren bij een exportproduct.
Productdocumentatie wordt nog vaak als bijproduct gezien. In het ideale geval kan dat ook: voor een veilige machine, die intuïtief te bedienen en onderhoudsvrij is, is geen handleiding nodig. De praktijk is echter anders.
