English term or phrase: stance of liability
Very little context unfortunately, it is required of a hotel management by a tour operator.

First thought is s.t. like
"Declaración de Responsabilidad" but I feel it must be more than that - The English suggests s.t. like "postura que adopta el "reclamado" ante la reclamación" for want of a neater way of saying it.
Any ideas, pls?

aceptación de responsabilidad


Explanation:

"stance of liability" da sólo 1 resultado en Google; "stance of responsibility" da 18. Sólo "stance of liability" ocurre en un contexto de seguros, pero en todas las ocurrencias puede verse claramente que el significado es “aceptación de responsabilidad”; te copio 2 de ellas:

Entrepreneurs whose activities cause personal iryuries naturally tend to take an opposite point of view in cases of doubt about what the law says. So do Liability insurers in my @ enonce, altl@ugh I must admit that I find the stance of liability insurffs in this respect a little puzzling. One might have thought that the more legal lillbility there was, the happier liability insurers would be. A@er all, no liability, no need for liability insura@e. http://216.239.51.100/search?q=cache:viHdz3BlNgEC:www.riskso...

Taking Responsibility

With the Grain of the Universe: The Church’s Witness and Natural Theology. By Stanley Hauerwas. Brazos. 250 pp. $22.99

For Gifford, this stance of responsibility was important, both to establish the credibility of Christianity and to defend the moral and spiritual values of the modern project.

(…) Yet, by advocating a stance of responsibility that undermines the sharp outlines and authoritative weight of particular truth claims, both exemplify habits of thought that make Christianity increasingly invisible and weightless.

(…) This is now evident in the resurgent patriotism that has followed in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks. We cannot overcome evil by adopting critical detachment, the stance of anywhere and nowhere.

Hope this will be of some help.
