Bosch Quality Agreement

The statute of limitations for 1 quality defect is 66 months, except in cases of fraudulent misrepresentation, provided that the goods were used in the building, in photovoltaic installations or during the construction of a heating system after its usual use and its defects were caused. Otherwise, the statute of limitations for claims of defects is 36 months.
