Lee v. Gaufin 867 P.2d 572(Utah 1993):

Unlike statutes of limitations, statutes of repose abolish a cause of action after a certain period, even if the action first accrues after the period has expired. The four-year repose period in § 78-14-4(1) runs from the commission of the alleged act of malpractice, irrespective of whether the malpractice is known or knowable, and all causes of action for malpractice not filed within that period are abolished.
