EXHIBIT 1 – AXIS’ RMA Handling
Before a unit requiring repair, replacement or upgrading (‘Service Unit’) can be repaired, replaced or upgraded by Axis, a return material authorization (‘RMA’) number must be requested from Axis. This is accomplished by filling in an Axis Service Document and faxing it to Axis. The Axis Service Document, including a note with the RMA number given for the Service Unit must also be physically sent with the Service Unit when it is subsequently shipped to Axis.
Return Units will normally be made available for shipment to the distributor within seven (7) working days after the completed Service Document and Service Unit has been received by Axis. Should this not be possible (e.g. in case of general product shortage), the distributor will be notified immediately. Unless the distributor has specifically requested a separate shipment to be made of the Return Unit, the Return Unit will be shipped back with the next regular shipment to the distributor.
After receipt of the RMA number from Axis, the Service Unit must be sent immediately to Axis. In case the Service Unit has still not been received at Axis two (2) calendar weeks after the RMA number was given, the full cost of a new unit will be invoiced to the distributor. The full cost of a new unit will also be invoiced if the Service Unit proves not to be defect. The Service Unit will in such a case be sent back to the distributor with the next regular shipment.
The distributor will pay the shipment of Service Unit from the distributor. Shipment of the Return Unit back to the distributor will be at the cost of Axis. Normally, the Return Unit will be included in an ordinary shipment to the distributor. If the distributor wishes Axis to make a separate shipment of the Return Unit, this must be stated on the Axis Service Document.
Printer cable, power supply, extra memory or other accessories should not be sent to Axis with the Service Unit as the Return Unit will have standard configuration. The Return Unit will be returned without packaging, cable and other accessories. Please note that it will be a different unit than the Service Unit sent for repair, and will have a different serial number. The Return Unit may also be a new unit with standard packaging.
All Return Units are upgraded to the firmware level currently used in production and all Return Units are set to factory default configuration.
So-called DOA (Defective On Arrival) units, will be replaced according to the same procedure as unit failing within warranty. It is requested that DOA units be specifically noted as such in the RMA document under Error Description.
If an Axis unit fails after the warranty period has expired, Axis may offer to replace or upgrade the unit at a cost normally corresponding to fifty (50) % of the price for a new unit. If the remaining warranty time for a Service Unit is none or less than three months, Axis will extend it to be three months for the Return Unit.
