expressly declares.


1. Times set for Supplies shall only be binding if all Documents to be furnished
by the Purchaser, necessary permits and approvals, especially concerning
plans, are received in time and if agreed terms of payment and other obligations
of the Purchaser are fulfilled. If these conditions are not fulfilled in time,
times set shall be extended reasonably; this shall not apply if the Supplier is

above are excluded in all cases of delayed Supplies, even upon expiry of a
time set to the Supplier to effect the Supplies. This shall not apply in cases
of liability based on intent, gross negligence, or due to loss of life,
bodily injury or damage to health. Rescission of the contract by the
Purchaser based on statute is limited to cases where the Supplier is responsible
for the delay. The above provisions do not imply a change in the burden
of proof to the detriment of the Purchaser.

period of time whether it, due to the delayed Supplies, rescinds the contract
or insists on the delivery of the Supplies.

one month after notification of the readiness for dispatch was given, the
Purchaser may be charged, for every additional month commenced, storage
costs of 0.5 % of the price of the items of the Supplies, but in no case more
than a total of 5 %. The parties to the contract may prove that higher or, as the case
may be, lower storage costs have been incurred.

the Purchaser’s expense;
b) if the Supplies include assembly or erection, at the day of taking over in
the Purchaser’s own works or, if so agreed, after a fault-free trial run.

structural data.

which the Supplier is not responsible, the Purchaser shall bear the reasonable
costs incurred for idle times and any additional traveling expenditure of the Supplier
or the erection personnel.

towards the Supplier at weekly intervals and the Purchaser shall immediately

6. If, after completion, the Supplier demands acceptance of the Supplies, the
Purchaser shall comply therewith within a period of two weeks. In default
thereof, acceptance is deemed to have taken place. Acceptance is also deemed
to have been effected if the Supplies are put to use, after completion of an agreed
test phase, if any.


The Purchaser shall not refuse to receive Supplies due to minor defects.


The Supplier shall be liable for defects as to quality (“Sachmängel”, hereinafter
referred to as “Defects”,) as follows:
1. Defective parts or defective services shall be, at the Supplier’s discretion,
repaired, replaced or provided again free of charge, provided that the reason for the
Defect had already existed at the time when the risk passed.
2. Claims for repair or replacement are subject to a statute of limitations of 12
months calculated from the start of the statutory statute of limitations; the
same shall apply mutatis mutandis in the case of rescission and reduction.
This shall not apply where longer periods are prescribed by law according to
Sec. 438 para. 1 No. 2 (buildings and things used for a building), Sec. 479
para. 1 (right of recourse), and Sec. 634a para. 1 No. 2 (defects of a building)

of the Defect or non-compliance with guaranteed characteristics
(Beschaffenheitsgarantie). The legal provisions regarding suspension of the
statute of limitations (“Ablaufhemmung”, “Hemmung”) and recommencement
of limitation periods shall be unaffected.
3. Notifications of Defect by the Purchaser shall be given in written form without
undue delay.
4. In the case of notification of a Defect, the Purchaser may withhold payments to an
amount that is in a reasonable proportion to the Defect. The Purchaser,
however, may withhold payments only if the subject-matter of the notification
of the Defect involved is justified and incontestable. The Purchaser has no
right to withhold payments to the extent that its claim of a Defect is time-barred.
Unjustified notifications of Defect shall entitle the Supplier to demand
reimbursement of its expenses by the Purchaser.
5. The Supplier shall be given the opportunity to repair or to replace the defective
good (“Nacherfüllung”) within a reasonable period of time.
6. If repair or replacement is unsuccessful, the Purchaser is entitled to rescind
the contract or reduce the remuneration; any claims for damages the
Purchaser may have according to No. 10 shall be unaffected.
7. There shall be no claims based on Defect in cases of insignificant deviations
from the agreed quality, of only minor impairment of usability, of natural wear
and tear, or damage arising after the passing of risk from faulty or negligent
handling, excessive strain, unsuitable equipment, defective civil works, inappropriate
foundation soil, or claims based on particular external influences
not assumed under the contract, or from non-reproducible software errors.
Claims based on defects attributable to improper modifications or repair
work carried out by the Purchaser or third parties and the consequences thereof are
likewise excluded.
8. The Purchaser shall have no claim with respect to expenses incurred in the
course of supplementary performance, including costs of travel, transport,
labor, and material, to the extent that expenses are increased because the
subject-matter of the Supplies has subsequently been brought to another
location than the Purchaser’s branch office, unless doing so complies with
the normal use of the Supplies.
9. The Purchaser’s right of recourse against the Supplier pursuant to Sec. 478 BGB
is limited to cases where the Purchaser has not concluded an agreement
with its customers exceeding the scope of the statutory provisions
governing claims based on Defects. Moreover, No. 8 above shall apply mutatis
mutandis to the scope of the right of recourse the Purchaser has against
the Supplier pursuant to Sec. 478 para. 2 BGB.
10. The Purchaser shall have no claim for damages based on Defects. This shall
not apply to the extent that a Defect has been fraudulently concealed, the
guaranteed characteristics are not complied with, in the case of loss of life,
bodily injury or damage to health, restrictions to liberty and/or intentionally or
grossly negligent breach of contract on the part of the Supplier. The above
provisions do not imply a change in the burden of proof to the detriment of
the Purchaser. Any other or additional claims of the Purchaser exceeding the
claims provided for in this Article VIII, based on a Defect, are excluded.


1. Unless otherwise agreed, the Supplier shall provide the Supplies free from
third parties’ industrial property rights and copyrights (hereinafter referred to
as “IPR”) with respect to the country of the place of delivery only. If a third
party asserts a justified claim against the Purchaser based on an infringement
of an IPR by the Supplies made by the Supplier and used in conformity
with the contract, the Supplier shall be liable to the Purchaser within the time period
stipulated in Article VIII No. 2 as follows:
a) The Supplier shall choose whether to acquire, at its own expense, the
right to use the IPR with respect to the Supplies concerned or whether to
modify the Supplies such that they no longer infringe the IPR or replace
them. If this would be impossible for the Supplier under reasonable conditions,
the Purchaser may rescind the contract or reduce the remuneration
pursuant to the applicable statutory provisions.
b) The Supplier’s liability to pay damages is governed by Article XII.
c) The above obligations of the Supplier shall apply only if the Purchaser (i)
immediately notifies the Supplier of any such claim asserted by the third
party in written form, (ii) does not concede the existence of an infringement
and (iii) leaves any protective measures and settlement negotiations
to the Supplier’s discretion. If the Purchaser stops using the Supplies in
order to reduce the damage or for other good reason, it shall be obliged
to point out to the third party that no acknowledgement of the alleged
infringement may be inferred from the fact that the use has been discontinued.
2. Claims of the Purchaser shall be excluded if it is responsible for the infringement
of an IPR.
3. Claims of the Purchaser are also excluded if the infringement of the IPR is
caused by specifications made by the Purchaser, by a type of use not foreseeable
by the Supplier or by the Supplies being modified by the Purchaser
or being used together with products not provided by the Supplier.
4. In addition, with respect to claims by the Purchaser pursuant to No. 1 a)
above, Article VIII Nos. 4, 5, and 9 shall apply mutatis mutandis in the event
of an infringement of an IPR.
5. Where other defects in title occur, Article VIII shall apply mutatis mutandis.
6. Any other claims of the Purchaser against the Supplier or its agents or any
such claims exceeding the claims provided for in this Article IX, based on a defect in
title, are excluded.

Article X: Conditional Performance
1. The performance of this contract is conditional upon that no hindrances
Attributable to German, US or otherwise applicable national, EU or international
rules of foreign trade law or any embargos or other sanctions exist.
2. The Purchaser shall provide any information and Documents required for
Transport and import purposes.


1. To the extent that delivery is impossible, the Purchaser is entitled to claim
damages, unless the Supplier is not responsible for the impossibility. The
Purchaser’s claim for damages is, however, limited to an amount of 10 % of
the value of the part of the Supplies which, owing to the impossibility, cannot
be put to the intended use. This limitation shall not apply in the case of
mandatory liability based on intent, gross negligence or loss of life, bodily
injury or damage to health; this does not imply a change in the burden of
proof to the detriment of the Purchaser. The Purchaser’s right to rescind the
contract shall be unaffected.
2. Where events within the meaning of Article IV No. 2
a) to c) substantially change the economic importance or the contents of the Supplies
or considerably affect the Supplier’s business, the contract shall be adapted
taking into account the principles of reasonableness and good faith. To the
extent this is not justifiable for economic reasons, the Supplier shall have the
right to rescind the contract. If the Supplier intends to exercise its right to
rescind the contract, it shall notify the Purchaser thereof without undue delay
after having realized the repercussions of the event; this shall also apply even
where an extension of the delivery period has previously been agreed with the


1. Unless otherwise provided for in the presend GL, the Purchaser has no claim
for damages based on whatever legal reason, including infringement of duties arising
in connection with the contract or tort.
2. This does not apply if liability is based on;
a) the German Product Liability Act (“Produkthaftungsgesetz”);
b) intend;
c) gross negligence on the part of the owners, legal representatives or executives;
d) fraud;
e) failure to comply with a guarantee granted;
f) negligent injury to life, limb or health; or
g) negligent breach of a fundamental condition of contract (wesentliche
However, claims for damages arising from a breach of a fundamental condition of
contract shall be lilmited to the foreseeable damage which is intrinsic to the contract,
provided that no other of the above case applies.


1. If the Purchaser is a businessman, sole venue for all disputes arising directly
or indirectly out of the contract shall be the Supplier’s place of business.
However, the Supplier may also bring an action at the Purchaser’s place of
2. This contract and its interpretation shall be governed by German law, to the
exclusion of the United Nations Convention on contracts for the International Sale of
Goods (CISG).


The legal invalidity of one or more provisions of this Agreement in no way affects
the validity of the remaining provisions. This shall not apply if it would be
unreasonable for one of the parties to be obligated to continue the contract.
