    13.1 Legal guarantee of conformity

    Article L.217-4 of the French Consumer Code states that “the seller is obliged to deliver goods in conformity with the contract and is liable for any defects in conformity existing at the time of delivery. He is also liable for any lack of conformity resulting from the packaging, the assembly instructions or the installation when the latter was made his responsibility by the contract or was carried out under his responsibility”.

    Article L217-5 of the Consumer Code states that: “The goods conform to the contract:

    1° If it is fit for the purpose usually expected of similar goods and, where applicable : – if it corresponds to the description given by the seller and has the qualities that the seller presented to the buyer in the form of a sample or model; – if it has the qualities that a buyer may legitimately expect in view of the public statements made by the seller, by the producer or by his representative, particularly in advertising or labelling;

    2° Or if it has the characteristics defined by mutual agreement between the parties or is suitable for any special use sought by the buyer, brought to the attention of the seller and accepted by the latter.

    Article L217-12 of the Consumer Code states that “the action resulting from the lack of conformity is prescribed by two years from the delivery of the goods”.

13.2 Guarantee against hidden defects

Article 1641 of the Civil Code provides that “the seller is bound by the warranty for hidden defects of the thing sold which render it unfit for the use for which it was intended, or which so diminish this use that the buyer would not have acquired it, or would have given a lower price for it, if he had known about them”.

Article 1648 of the Civil Code states that “the action resulting from redhibitory defects must be brought by the purchaser within two years of the discovery of the defect. In the case provided for in Article 1642-1, the action must be brought, on pain of foreclosure, within one year of the date on which the seller may be relieved of the defects or apparent lack of conformity”.

13.3 Exclusion of guarantees

Products that have been modified, repaired, integrated or added by the Customer are excluded from the warranty. The guarantee shall not apply to apparent defects. The guarantee will not cover products damaged during transport or due to incorrect use.
