A warranty against defects is given by the manufacturer – it is commonly known as a 'manufacturer’s warranty'.
It says when you are entitled to a repair, replacement, refund or something else if the product has defects. These are additional to your legal rights to a refund, repair or replacement under consumer guarantees; not instead of.
In order to be able to make a claim under a written warranty, the manufacturer may require you to register the product by filling in and returning a warranty card. However, a manufacturer cannot always deny a claim because the product was not registered. If you have a receipt showing what the item is and when you purchased it, this will usually fulfil the same purpose as registering the product.
