2.1 These Conditions apply to the Contract to the exclusion of any other terms that the

Customer seeks to impose or incorporate, or which are implied by trade, custom, practice or

course of dealing.

2.2 The Order constitutes an offer by the Customer to purchase the Goods in accordance with

these Conditions. The Customer is responsible for ensuring that the terms of the Order and

any applicable Specification submitted by the Customer are complete, accurate and up to

date.

2.3 Supply of the Goods will be subject to Sample Approval. Sample Approval will reference

drawings and/or specifications provided by the Customer at the time of the Order. It is the

responsibility of the Customer to supply current drawings/specifications/requirements with any

Order or subsequent Order.

2.4 Once the Order is accepted and samples approved, the Supplier will continue to supply

Goods to the current revision, even on a subsequent Order, unless the Customer supplies

changes to the revision of drawings/specifications/requirements.

2.5 The Order shall only be deemed to be accepted when the Supplier issues a written

acceptance of the Order, at which point the Contract shall come into existence.

2.6 The Contract constitutes the entire agreement between the parties. The Customer

acknowledges that it has not relied on any statement, promise or representation made or given

by or on behalf of the Supplier which is not set out in the Contract.

2.7 Any samples, drawings, descriptive matter, or advertising produced by the Supplier and

period has been stated by the Supplier at the time of quotation.

supplied by the Customer, the Customer shall indemnify the Supplier against all liabilities,

costs, expenses, damages and losses (including any direct, indirect or consequential losses,

loss of profit, loss of reputation and all interest, penalties and legal and other professional

costs and expenses) suffered or incurred by the Supplier in connection with any claim made

against the Supplier for actual or alleged infringement of a third party's Intellectual Property

Rights arising out of or in connection with the Supplier's use of the Specification. This condition

3.2 shall survive termination of the Contract.

3.3 The Supplier reserves the right to amend the Specification if required by any applicable

statutory or regulatory requirements.

4. DELIVERY

4.1 The Supplier shall ensure that:

(a) each delivery of the Goods is accompanied by a delivery note which shows the date of the

Order, all relevant Customer and Supplier reference numbers, the type and quantity of the

Goods (including the code number of the Goods, where applicable); and

(b) if the Supplier requires the Customer to return any packaging materials to the Supplier, that

fact is clearly stated on the delivery note or in other written or verbal communication. The

Customer shall make any such packaging materials available for collection at such times as

the Supplier shall reasonably request. Returns of packaging materials shall be at the

Supplier's expense.

4.2 The Supplier shall deliver the Goods to the location set out in the Order or such other

location as the parties may agree (Delivery Location) at any time after the Supplier notifies

the Customer that the Goods are ready unless otherwise agreed in writing.

4.3 Delivery of the Goods shall be completed on the Goods' arrival at the Delivery Location.

4.4 Delay in delivery;

a) Orders will be executed as expeditiously as possible, but where a delivery date is quoted it

is a settlement of expectation only, and time of delivery shall not be of the essence of

Contract.

b) If having used reasonable endeavours, the Supplier fails to despatch or deliver by any

stated date, such failure shall not be a breach of Contract and the Customer shall not be

entitled to claim compensation for such failure or any consequential loss or damage resulting

therefrom.

c) No liability is accepted for direct or consequential loss or damage arising from delay in

delivery or failure to deliver due to a Force Majeure event, strike action or other industrial

disputes, inability to obtain or shortage of supplies or other matters whatsoever outside the

Supplier’s control.

4.5 If the Supplier fails to deliver the Goods, its liability shall be limited to the costs and

expenses incurred by the Customer in obtaining replacement goods of similar description and

quality in the cheapest market available, less the price of the Goods. The Supplier shall have

no liability for any failure to deliver the Goods to the extent that such failure is caused by a

Force Majeure Event or the Customer's failure to provide the Supplier with adequate delivery

instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Goods.

4.6 If the Customer fails to accept delivery of the Goods within three Business Days of the

Supplier notifying the Customer that the Goods are ready, then, except where such failure or

delay is caused by a Force Majeure Event or the Supplier's failure to comply with its

obligations under the Contract:

(a) delivery of the Goods shall be deemed to have been completed at 9.00 am on the third

Business Day after the day on which the Supplier notified the Customer that the Goods were

ready; and

(b) the Supplier shall store the Goods until delivery takes place, and charge the Customer for

all related costs and expenses (including insurance).

4.7 If 10 Business Days after the day on which the Supplier notified the Customer that the

Goods were ready for delivery the Customer has not accepted delivery of them, the Supplier

may resell or otherwise dispose of part or all of the Goods and, after deducting reasonable

storage and selling costs, account to the Customer for any excess over the price of the Goods

or charge the Customer for any shortfall below the price of the Goods.

4.8 The Customer shall not be entitled to reject the Goods if the Supplier delivers up to and

including 10% more or less than the quantity of Goods ordered.

4.9 The Supplier may deliver the Goods by instalments, which shall be invoiced and paid for

separately. Each instalment shall constitute a separate Contract. Any delay in delivery or

defect in an instalment shall not entitle the Customer to cancel any other instalment.

(e) the defect arises as a result of fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, or abnormal

storage or working conditions; or

of the events listed in condition 8.2, or the Supplier reasonably believes that any such event is

about to happen and notifies the Customer accordingly, then, provided that the Goods have

not been resold, or irrevocably incorporated into another product, and without limiting any

other right or remedy the Supplier may have, the Supplier may at any time require the

Customer to deliver up the Goods and, if the Customer fails to do so promptly, enter any
