(a) Federal Trade Commission Act and Federal Seed Act (1) Nothing contained in this chapter shall be construed to repeal, invalidate, or supersede the Federal Trade Commission Act [15 U.S.C.

41 et seq.] or any statute defined therein as an Antitrust Act. Title I of this Act authorizes the Federal Trade Commission to develop regulations for written warranties.

The Act directs the Commission to establish disclosure standards for written warranties, specifies standards for “full” warranties, limits disclaimer of implied warranties, and establishes consumer remedies for breach of warranty or service contract obligations.

Federal minimum standards for warranties § Full and limited warranting of a consumer product § Service contracts; rules for full, clear and conspicuous disclosure of terms and conditions; addition to or in lieu of written warranty § Designation of representatives by warrantor to perform duties under written or implied warranty.

The Act and the FTC Rules provide three basic requirements that apply to either warrantors or sellers: Warrantors must designate or title a written warranty as either "full" or "limited".

Warrantors must state certain information about the coverage of the warranty in a single, clear, and easily readable document. The text provides citations to specific sections of the law—the Warranty Act itself, the Rules the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) adopted under the Act, and the FTC's Warranty Advertising Guides.

For reference purposes, a supplement to this manual containing the Act, the Rules, and the Guides is available from the FTC's Consumer Response Center. Federal law requires that warranties be available for you to read before you buy even when you're shopping by catalog or on the Internet.

Coverage varies, so you can compare the extent of warranty coverage just as you compare the style, price, and other characteristics of products. Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA) Enacted inCPSA is our umbrella statute. This law established the agency, defines CPSC’s basic authority and authorizes the agency to develop standards and bans.

It also gives CPSC the authority to pursue recalls and to ban products. Warranties may be subject to limitations, including time, mileage, deductibles, businesses authorized to perform warranty work or special procedures required to obtain reimbursement.

Check with your state Attorney General or local consumer protection agenc y for information about your warranty rights. You are about to leave the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) public website. The link you selected is for a destination outside of the Federal Government.

CPSC does not control this external site or its privacy policy and cannot attest to the accuracy of the information it contains. InCongress enacted the Magnuson-Moss Warranty-Federal Trade Commission Improvement Act to eliminate confusion over what warranties manufacturers and sellers give on their products.

See 15 U.S.C. §§ (); see also Kathleen F. Brickey, The Magnuson-Moss Act. A standard form consumer contract is a contract you accept on a take it or leave it basis — you can't negotiate the terms.

If you think a term is unfair, you can apply to the Commerce Commission under the FTA to have it reviewed. The Commerce Commission then decides if they will ask the District Court to declare the term unfair. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty–Federal Trade Commission Improvement Act was the first federal statute to address the law of Warranty.

The act (15 U.S.C.A. § et seq.) mandates that a written warranty on any consumer product that costs more than $5 must completely and conspicuously disclose, in easily understood words, the terms and conditions of the warranty.

According to the Magnuson-Moss Warranty and Federal Trade Commission Improvement Act, the consumer must be informed of the warranty prior to the sale. The act also requires no written warranty may waive the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose during the term of the written warranty.

PRODUCT LIABILITY. The Consumer Guarantees Act (CGA) gives you the right to seek a remedy, eg a repair or a replacement, from the manufacturer whether or not the products come with a manufacturer’s warranty (called an “express guarantee” in the Act).

Federal Trade Commission. Bureau of Consumer Protection.] -- A practical guide provides workable suggestions for writing a simple and easily understandable warranty. Specific instruction is given for writing the warranty once it is decided what. With an emphasis on drafting techniques and litigation strategies, The Law of Product Warranties is a comprehensive treatise that analyzes in detail all elements of a warranty problem.

It suggests ways for drafters to minimize their exposure to warranty claims, and contains unique features including a “remedy roadmap” and an annotated commercial warranty form.
