It is not new, but perhaps not well-known, a previous change in legislation, which may be important in connection with the amendment to the warranty regulations that came into force in January this year, Niveus Consulting Group warned.
The consulting firm recalls that in 2014, the new Civil Code came into force, which changed the meaning of the term consumer. According to this
today, only an individual qualifies as a consumer, a company even if he otherwise purchases the product covered by the warranty outside his business.
– This means that the renewed rules only apply to products sold to private individuals. Anyone who buys as a company will not necessarily be able to take advantage of all the benefits, as there is no warranty obligation for contracts between companies, explains Niveus Consulting Group, underlining that
this does not mean that the seller does not have to take responsibility for the business buyer,
that is, that the product it sells is working properly.
However, this liability can be more broadly limited.
The business buyer will not necessarily have the benefits of proof that an individual does, experts have concluded, which may also be considered for consumers who only request an invoice to reduce the identifiable expenses of a familiar or family business.
