A defect is a material imperfection that makes the goods less acceptable or less passable. These include obvious problems or latent defects, as well as hidden problems in the future or patent defects that sellers can escape under the Voetstoots clause, provided they did not know of such defects at the time of sale.

If defects occur after the sale or if the goods do not comply with the standards set by law, the buyer is entitled to return them within six months of the date of the sale, and the law considers that the company is responsible for repairing or replacing the goods or repaying the buyer. Tlelane added that after repairing a defective product, the repair process itself has another three-month warranty. In addition to these consumer rights under the CPA, the CPA is also considering other offers in the event of damage caused by defective goods, which could claim damages from the seller.
