Our policy on returns
If you are unhappy with your purchase, you can return it unopened (with any
seals and packaging intact) in its original condition within 30 days of the
date you received the item and we will issue a full refund for the price you
paid for the item.

We can only accept the return of opened items if they are
faulty. To return items follow the instructions below:
- fill out the back of the delivery slip, giving the reason for the return.
Please include your order number;
- if you do not have the original delivery slip, please send us a note detailing
the reason for return. The note MUST include your order number, which you
will be able to find;
- in the case of a faulty product, please provide a full description of the
fault in the space provided on the delivery slip;
- wrap the item securely in its original packaging (if any) with any other
associated documentation; and then
- send the package to: Publishing, The Institute of Environmental Management
and Assessment, Saracen House, Crusader Road, City Office Park, Tritton Road, Lincoln, LN6 7AS, England.

Returning faulty items
You have the right to return a faulty item within a reasonable period of time.

withdrawing from your purchase within seven working days, we will also refund
the normal postage charge for the delivery of that item.
The cooling-off period?
By law, you also have the right to withdraw from your purchase of an item within
seven working days of the day after the date the item is delivered to you. To
cancel your purchase in this cooling-off period, please fill out the delivery
slip that accompanies your items, giving the reason for the return as "contract
cancellation". Please package the relevant item securely and send it to
us with the delivery slip so that we receive it within seven working days of
the day after the date that the item was delivered to you. The return address
is: Publications, The Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment,

Please note that you will be responsible for the costs of returning the goods
to us unless we delivered them to you in error, or they were faulty. If we do
not receive the item back from you with the delivery slip, we may arrange for
collection of the item from your residence at your cost.
As soon as we receive notice of your cancellation of this order, we will refund
the relevant part of the purchase price for that item together with the item's
