Service stations will be able to obtain this confirmation in writing or through permanent data storage.
What are the Amendments Made In The Warranty Certificate Regulation?
With the amendment, it has been stated that the guarantee certificate that manufacturers and importers have to issue for the goods they produce or import for consumers must be prepared in a clear, understandable, simple and readable manner in accordance with the provisions of the regulation.
The responsibility of issuing the warranty certificate and giving it to the consumer and the proof that this responsibility has been fulfilled will also belong to the seller.
In the warranty certificate, just like the obligation imposed on the service stations, if the request of the consumer is given in writing on paper, the sellers will have to submit the warranty certificate in writing.
Article 7 of the regulation titled "Mandatory information to be included in the warranty certificate" has also been changed. Accordingly, the seller's title, address, telephone and other contact information as well as the signature and stamp of the authorized person in contracts established at a distance; invoice date and number; The delivery date and location conditions of the goods to the consumer will not be sought. In such cases, the information on the invoice will be taken as basis.
