(December 2012 edition)
Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the following terms and conditions exclusively apply to our inquiries and purchase orders. We shall not be bound by Seller's terms and conditions unless expressly accepted by us in writing. Quotations and consultation provided by the Seller shall be without charge to and not binding on us, but shall be binding on the Seller. The Seller is obliged to collect sufficient information on all details concerning the subject of inquiry or supply.
ASK must receive the written order confirmation not later than 3 days after receipt of purchase order.
The Purchase Order is also deemed to be unconditionally accepted if the Seller is perceived to have commenced carrying out the Purchase Order after receipt or if the Goods have been (partially) shipped. Our Purchase Order number must always be duly stated.
All invoices are to be addressed to ASK. The invoices must be submitted in duplicate and should bear reference to date and method of dispatch and place of delivery. Value added tax, where applicable, shall be shown separately and all invoices as a strictly net extra charge. A separate invoice must be issued for each individual shipment under the Contract. Apart from the Purchase Order and item number, all relevant Purchase Order and dispatch data must be indicated in the invoice. For services the relevant proofs must be attached to the invoices. We reserve the right to return any invoices that do not conform to this requirement. In this case no invoice shall be considered to have been submitted until a rectified invoice is presented.
The goods, which must be in perfect condition, are packed very carefully for transportation. ASK can decide to return the packing for the account and risk of the Seller.
All necessary or useful information for storage and further handling (inclusive of lifting and transport situations) must be clearly indicated on the packing.
All goods must be delivered at the delivery address, specified in the purchase order. If the goods are delivered incorrectly the supplier is held liable for all additional costs that might incur in connection with delivery at the correct address.
All goods must be labelled according to AFB’ specifications. If no labelling has been specified, the goods must be labelled with ASK item number.
The delivery instructions which ASK issue must be strictly observed; any damage or ensuing costs attributable to delivery regulations or conditions not being observed (e.g. extra freight, demurrage, customs duties) shall be borne exclusively by the Seller. If there are no delivery regulations or conditions, the cheapest and most favourable means of shipping and delivery for ASK are to be used. Delivery through a forwarding agent always requires ASK consent; if this form of delivery is used, ASK delivery regulations and ASK order number must be handed over to the forwarding agent so that he can also pass these on to the carrier, if any.
A packing slip and dispatch note are to be packed with the consignment itself.
In case of direct supply, a copy of the delivery note or readiness of dispatch note must be sent immediately to ASK. The following information must be indicated on the delivery note and on the package: ASK complete order number and item number, contents, consecutive number of the package, usual markings, gross and net weights as well as dimensions of the package. Labelling requirements must be observed.
When supplying goods duty unpaid, the relevant customs documents, if necessary certificates of origin, movement and identification certificates, etc., must be sent along with the goods.
In case of consignment with over dimensional size the Seller has the duty to inform ASK about the shipment in detail (packaging, dimensions and weights) at least 6 weeks in advance to the delivery.
If delivery documents are not issued according to the order, ASK shall be entitled to return the consignment at the Supplier's expense and/or to reimbursement of the ensuing additional costs.
All relevant documents, order confirmation, delivery note, invoice etc. must be marked with purchase order number and item number.
If the order is marked with another delivery address (direct orders) than the address of ASK a delivery note with purchase order number must still follow the delivery. A copy should be faxed or emailed to AFB’s purchase department. No documents must state prices or other information relevant to ASK only.
