Article L.217-4 of the French Consumer Code
The vendor is obliged to deliver a good conform to the contract and is answerable for any lack of compliance existing on its delivery.

Article L.217-5 of the French Consumer Code
In order to comply with the contract, the good must:
1° Be suitable for the use normally expected of a similar good and, where appropriate:
- correspond to the description given by the vendor and possess the qualities that the latter has presented to the purchaser in the form of a sample or model;
- display the qualities that a buyer may legitimately expect, having regard to the public declarations made by the vendor, by the producer, or by his representative, in advertisements or labelling in particular;
