Class I: Dead-On-Arrival (DOA) products, or Defective-On-Arrival products: Products found to be faulty upon arrival or as soon as they are put into use within the first 30 days (45 days for distributors) from the date of dispatch, either due to damage in transit or defects in the products.
Class II: Warranted defective products: Products whose defects are found and reported within the warranty period and are covered by the warranty.
Class III: Defective products not protected by warranty: Products outside the warranty period, or products not covered by the warranty for other reasons.
1. The DOA products must be reported to and confirmed with EVOC within 30 days (45 days for distributors) after the date of dispatch. EVOC will accept the returned product or give a new replacement to the customer free of charge. If the customer fails to report the DOA case or defects to EVOC within the time frame specified above, the product will not be treated as a DOA product.
The customer can choose from the following services:
A. Servicing at the nearest local Service Center of EVOC;
B. Replacement with a product of same specifications or same price;
C. Return service (The product to be returned shall be retuned in its intact package without unauthorized alteration. EVOC will bear the round-trip shipping cost for DOA product replacement. If the returned product meets the requirement but its failure or defect occurs and is reported 30-60 days after the date of dispatch, EVOC will deduct a demurrage fee equal to 20% of the product value. If the failure or defect occurs and is reported 61-90 days after the date of dispatch, the demurrage fee climbs to 30%. If the failure or defect occurs and is reported 90 days or more after the date of dispatch, product return is not allowed.)

The shipping cost for returning the defective product to EVOC shall be borne by the customer, and the shipping cost for sending repaired product or new product to the customer shall be borne by EVOC, i.e., the shipping cost shall be borne by the shipper, and any expenses other than shipping cost shall be borne by the consignee. In case of failure not caused by quality defects, EVOC will charge a reasonable maintenance fee and provide a failure analysis report, and the round-trip shipping cost shall be borne by the customer.
3. For Class III products, EVOC can provide paid maintenance services for products out of warranty period. Such products are subject to the confirmation by the Maintenance Department of EVOC that the provision of such maintenance is economically reasonable, and such products shall not be so damaged that they cannot meet minimum quality criteria after the maintenance. EVOC shall charge the customer reasonable labor cost, material cost and round-trip shipping cost for replacing materials and parts.
