Manner and Effect of Rightful Rejection
Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) CHAPTER 38, ARTICLE 2, PART 6
Section 2--602. Manner and Effect of Rightful Rejection.

(1) Rejection of goods must be within a reasonable time after their
delivery or tender. It is ineffective unless the buyer seasonably
notifies the seller.

(2) Subject to the provisions of the two following sections on
rejected goods (Sections 2--603 and 2--604).

(a) after rejection any exercise of ownership by the buyer with

respect to any commercial unit is wrongful as against the

seller; and

(b) if the buyer has before rejection taken physical possession

of goods in which he does not have a security interest under

the provisions of this Article (subsection (3) of Section

2--711), he is under a duty after rejection to hold them with

reasonable care at the seller's disposition for a time

sufficient to permit the seller to remove them; but

(c) the buyer has no further obligations with regard to goods

rightfully rejected.

(3) The seller's rights with respect to goods wrongfully rejected are
governed by the provisions of this Article on seller's remedies in
general (Section 2--703).
