  • Abide by AIA decisions regarding complaints and/or disputes with the member’s customers.
  • Where applicable to the member’s business:
    • When requested to do so by a consumer, offer a written quotation for repairs or, where this is not possible, make it clear to the consumer that only an estimate is being furnished.
    • Notify the consumer in advance if any dismantling charges are necessary to arrive at a quotation and at the same time make it clear whether or not the consumer is liable for these charges, irrespective of whether the quotation is accepted.
    • Issue their standard invoice for all warranty repairs showing parts replaced, work carried out and a note that it is uncharged warranty work.

This Code is to be read in conjunction with the relevant Code of Practice and the document “Obligations of AIA Members”.
