It may be also noted that if the product sold by the seller to the consumer is malfunctioning then the seller needs to repair or replace the product. Further, if the product is repeatedly malfunctioning three times during the first year, then the seller needs to replace the same with no costs. This is in accordance with Article 12 and Article 13 of the Consumer Protection Law, which states,

Based on the aforementioned provisions of law, consumers can file a complaint with the Consumer Protection Department at the Department of Economic Development against the seller.
