RMA Procedure

The definition of defective products falls into three categories as described below:

  • DOA (Defect On Arrival):
    Defect occurs within three months of purchase.

  • IRMA (In-warranty of Return Merchandise Authorization):
    Defect occurs after three months of purchase and before the warranty has expired.

  • ORMA (Out-of-warranty Return Merchandise Authorization):
    Defect occurs after the warranty has expired.

The above terms are determined by the purchase date on the invoice up to the time the product is returned to GIGALIGHT.
