In the UK the contract is between the buyer and seller so the original
buyer would have to make the complaint.  If the buyer and seller were
in the UK and the goods do not match the advertised spec (UVC
compliant in this case) then the supplier would have to fix or
exchange the goods or refund the money.  Additionally, in the UK, if
the buyer did not receive satisfaction and the goods were purchased by
credit card, then the buyer can claim a refund from the credit card

It all gets more complicated if the purchase is across country
borders.  Generally, however, if the buyer uses a UK credit card
he/she can claim against the credit card company if all else fails.
