Traditional Equipment Acceptance requirements are met as long as the installation complies with the manufacturer design intent and reflects the proper process parameters for equipment acceptance. This process detects underlying defects, which may result in premature equipment failure before final release of payment transactions are complete to the manufacturer. Regardless of whether the failure occurs within or outside of the warranty period, the facility incurs costs associated with correcting the problem [directly] or enforcing the contractor’s warranty at a later date [indirectly].
