Any claim for wrong items or quantities differing from the purchase order must be notified in writing to LBA within 3 days from the receipt of the goods.

If the claim will be approved and justified by LBA, the company will evaluate the proper solution for each case: an adequate discount on the amount of the invoice of the relative order, the replacing of nonconforming products or wrong items, the return of the exceeded quantities to LBA (with delivery terms to be preventively agreed) or an adequate discount on the amount of the invoice of the relative order.

It is understood that returns will be accepted only in original and complete packs, and only with prior approval in writing by LBA.
