Article 6 – Product Warranty

These legal guarantees are defined below:


Guarantee of conformity: extracts from the consumer code


Art. L. 217-4. - The seller delivers a good in conformity with the contract and is liable for any lack of 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 it has been charged to him by the contract or has been carried out under his responsibility.


Art. L. 217-5. - The good is in conformity with the contract:

1° S'il est propre à l'usage habituellement attendu d'un bien semblable et, le cas échéant :

- if it corresponds to the description given by the seller and has the qualities that the latter has presented to the Buyer in the form of a sample or model;

- if it has the qualities that a Buyer can legitimately expect in view of the public statements made by the seller, by the producer or by his representative, in particular in advertising or labelling;

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


Article L. 217-7. – Defects of conformity that appear within a period of twenty-four months from the delivery of the good are presumed to exist at the time of delivery, unless proven otherwise.

For goods sold used, this period is set at six months.

The seller may combat this presumption if it is not compatible with the nature of the good or the lack of conformity invoked.


Article L. 217-9. - In case of lack of conformity, the Buyer chooses between the repair and the replacement of the good.

However, the seller may not proceed according to the choice of the Buyer if this choice entails a cost manifestly disproportionate to the other modality, taking into account the value of the good or the importance of the defect. He is then required to proceed, unless impossible, according to the method not chosen by the Buyer.


Art. L. 217-12. - The action resulting from the lack of conformity is prescribed by two years from the delivery of the good.


Art. L. 217-16. - When the Buyer asks the seller, during the course of the commercial guarantee that was granted to him at the time of the acquisition or repair of a movable property, a restoration covered by the guarantee, any period of immobilization of at least seven days is added to the duration of the guarantee that remained to run.

This period runs from the buyer's request for intervention or the provision for repair of the goods in question, if this provision is subsequent to the request for intervention.


Guarantee of hidden defects: extracts from the Civil Code


Art. 1641- The seller is bound by the warranty for hidden defects of the thing sold that make it unfit for the use for which it is intended, or that reduce so much this use, that the Buyer would not have acquired it, or would have given only a lower price, if he had known them.


Art. 1648: The action resulting from the redhibitory defects must be brought by the purchaser within two years from the discovery of the defect.

It is recalled that the consumer:


- has a period of two (2) years from the delivery of the product to act;

- may choose between the repair or replacement of the good, subject to the cost conditions provided for by Article L217-9 of the Consumer Code;

- is exempt from having to prove the existence of the lack of conformity of the good during the two (2) years following the delivery of the product (six months for second-hand goods).


The legal guarantee applies regardless of any commercial guarantee granted.


The consumer may decide to implement the guarantee against hidden defects of the thing sold within the meaning of Article 1641 of the Civil Code and, in this case, he may choose between the resolution of the sale or a reduction in the sale price in accordance with Article 1644 of the Civil Code.
