Changes in the initial product warranty accrual and the expenses incurred under the Company’s initial and extended warranties are included within accrued liabilities and were as follows (in thousands):
The Company's Waterlase laser systems sold domestically are covered by a warranty against defects in material and workmanship for a period of up to one year from the date of sale to the end-user by the Company or a distributor. The Company's diode systems sold domestically are covered by a warranty against defects in material and workmanship for a period of up to two years from the date of sale to the end-user by the Company or a distributor. Waterlase systems and diode systems sold internationally are covered by a warranty against defects in material and workmanship for a period of up to 28 months from date of sale to the international distributor. The Company's laser systems warranty covers parts and service for sales in its North American territories and parts only for international distributor sales.
In North America and select international locations, the Company sells extended warranty contracts to its laser systems end users that cover the period after the expiration of the Company's standard warranty coverage for its laser systems. Extended warranty coverage provided under the Company's service contracts varies by the type of system and the level of service desired by the customer. Products or accessories remanufactured, refurbished, or sold by unauthorized parties, voids all warranties in place for such products and exempts the Company from liability issues relating to the use of such products. The Company distributes extended warranties on certain imaging products, including its digital radiography products. However, all imaging products that the Company distributes are initially covered by manufacturer’s warranties.
