- Returns policy. We do not accept returns for purchases of electronic documents. For documents in paper format, CD-ROM or other similar media sent by post, returns are accepted in the case of an order having been mistakenly placed twice or on a case by case basis. In all cases, without exception, documents can only be returned upon agreement from ISO who will explain the procedure to follow.
