1 - RMA’s (Return for Credit)

An RMA will only be authorized under the following conditions:

  • request needs to be submitted and returned within 30 days of the date of our sales invoice
  • Products sold on a non-returns basis are excluded (e.g. Non Stocked/bespoke purchase from Vendor).
  • If the product(s) are not received by Network PCB within 30 days of authorization then the RMA will expire and the goods will be rejected at the warehouse if received after this time, or you will be asked to arrange a collection
  • product(s) must be returned to Network PCB in its original condition (unopened and in original packaging). Failure to return any item (Evaluation Returns Excluded) or component in original condition will result in a credit not being issued.
  • Licenses, Smartnet & Maintenance Contracts are subject to Vendor approval and will only be authorized for Credit upon this approval being granted.

Restocking Fee

Authorized RMAs may incur a Restocking Fee (at our discretion), unless the reason for RMA is a result of Network PCB error.

The restocking fee, should we choose to apply, is 15% of the total value of products or £50/$50/50 Euros (currency on order) whichever is higher.

Credit Notes

The amount credited will be the original sale price as invoiced less any Restocking Fees.

2 - RMA’s (Return for Replacement / Repair)

A RMA will only be Authorized if the product(s) falls into one of the following two categories

  1. DOA (Dead on Arrival)
  2. In-Warranty


Products found to be defective out of the box or “dead” on arrival, may be returned for replacement in accordance to Vendor Terms and Conditions.


Network PCB will review the RMA request and evaluate with regard to the manufacturer’s warranty terms.

If Network PCB are to process the warranty, a replacement or repair will be coordinated with the manufacturer.

In the event that the warranty claim is not handled by Network PCB, then an alternative contact will be provided.

Advance Replacements

If an item is deemed to be 'network critical' then it is advisable to purchase a maintenance contract for that item.

Advance replacements may be provided but this is at the Network PCBs’ discretion

If an Advance Replacement is Authorized,the product(s) will be invoiced at current pricing.

A full credit will be issued once the defective item(s) have been returned to Network PCB.
