reliatrace RMA policy


Our commitment to quality doesn’t end when we deliver.

Reliatrace® is committed to providing you with the industry’s most reliable printed electronics. If you’ve received an assembly you deem to be defective, we ask that you provide information in a timely manner, so we can quickly and comprehensively address the issue you are experiencing. You will need to submit a Returned Material Authorization (RMA) form, and return the affected parts for analysis.

Conditions and Requirements

1) If rejected parts are received by Reliatrace® within 90 days, we reserve the right to repair, rework and replace the rejected parts.  If returned parts are credited, full and partial credit will be limited to the following schedule. 

0 - 60 days, 100% credit

91 - 120 days, 75%

121 - 180 days, 50%

180+ days,  no credit

There is a 180-day limit on returns.  Time elapsed is determined from the date the parts arrive on the customer's dock, to the dock date that Reliatrace receives the returned parts.

2) For credit, parts must be returned to Reliatrace in the same condition as they were received, and in the same or similar packaging in which they were received.  Reliatrace won't accept parts that have been damaged by handling or storage, or packaged incorrectly for return.
