402.606 What constitutes acceptance of goods.


(1) Acceptance of goods occurs when the buyer:


(a) After a reasonable opportunity to inspect the goods signifies to the seller that the goods are conforming or that the buyer will take or retain them in spite of their nonconformity; or


(b) Fails to make an effective rejection (s. 402.602 (1)), but such acceptance does not occur until the buyer has had a reasonable opportunity to inspect them; or


(c) Does any act inconsistent with the seller's ownership; but if such act is wrongful as against the seller it is an acceptance only if ratified by the seller.


(2) Acceptance of a part of any commercial unit is acceptance of that entire unit.
