4.3 If Salcom accepts the request and confirms this to the buyer in writing, Salcom shall carry out and comply with any specification change order made under these Conditions of Sale. The cost of complying with the specification change order shall be added to or deducted from the price of goods and will be set in the specification change order confirmation from Salcom. Any dispute over the appropriate adjustment shall be determined in accordance with the procedure set out in clause 17.
4.4 If manufacturing or procurement has begun before a specification change order request is confirmed by Salcom to the buyer any completed items, work in progress or raw materials that cannot be altered or will not be required to comply with the specification change order will be invoiced to the buyer. This will be at the previously agreed price (in terms of completed items) or at the cost of manufacture and processing the order to the date Salcom accepts in writing the specification change order request.
5.1 Subject to clauses 5.2 and 5.3, the price for goods will be as set out in the relevant quote or, in the absence of a quote, as invoiced by Salcom using the agreed pricing applicable at the date of delivery.
5.2 Unless there has been a failure on the part of Salcom to supply goods on or before an agreed delivery date, a price specified in a quote will cease to apply to an order where the quote has expired at the time of delivery. Quotes expire twenty (20) working days after submission to the buyer by Salcom unless otherwise noted on the quote.
5.3 The buyer agrees that the price for goods the subject of a quote may exceed the price in the quote where the price to Salcom of raw materials and other manufacturing costs have increased since the time of the quote and the exchange rate has moved against Salcom, in which case the quoted price may be increased by Salcom to reflect the increased price of materials and the change in the exchange rate.
5.4 The price excludes freight unless otherwise specified. Freight surcharges may also apply to after hours or weekend deliveries.
5.5 Price change notifications will be at Salcom’s discretion.
5.6 Goods and Services Tax and other taxes and duties assessed or levied in connection with the supply of the goods to the buyer are not included in the price and shall be payable by the buyer in addition to the price or, where the payment of such taxes or duties is the responsibility of Salcom at law, the price shall be increased by the amount of such taxes or duties.
6.1 Payment for goods delivered and payment of any other amounts invoiced by Salcom shall be made by the 20th of the month following invoice.
6.2 Salcom may at any time require security for payment for goods and may suspend performance of its obligations under the contract until sufficient security is provided.
6.3 For the avoidance of doubt, the buyer shall not be entitled to withhold payment for any goods where there is no dispute in relation to those goods i.e. if an invoice relates to a delivery where some goods are in dispute and some are not, then the buyer must pay for the goods that are not in dispute by the date specified in clause 6.1 above.
6.4 All payments are strictly net. No deductions may be made for rebates until a credit note has been raised by Salcom and issued to the buyer.
6.5 Any late payment or non-payment will constitute a default by the buyer in the performance of the contract. Interest at 3% per annum above the highest base overdraft rate charged by Salcom’s principal bank at the time of commencement of the default may be payable from the time of commencement of the default until the date of payment but without prejudice to Salcom’s other rights or remedies.
6.6 In addition to interest, the buyer will be liable for all debt collection costs, including solicitor’s costs, incurred by Salcom in recovering any outstanding amounts.
6.7 Salcom may offset any payments due to the buyer while any overdue amounts payable to Salcom remain outstanding.
6.8 If the buyer defaults in the due payment of any moneys payable to Salcom, whether under the contract or otherwise, or if the buyer is in default in the performance of its obligations under the contract or any other contract between Salcom and the buyer or if Salcom deems the credit of the buyer to be unsatisfactory, without prejudice to any other right it has at law or in equity, Salcom may, at its option, suspend or terminate the contract, and payment for goods delivered and work in progress up to the date of such suspension or termination and any other moneys payable hereunder shall immediately become due and payable.
7.1 Delivery shall be made at the place specified in the relevant confirmation of order. If the buyer fails or refuses or indicates to Salcom that it will fail or refuse to take or accept delivery, then the goods shall be deemed to have been delivered when Salcom was willing to deliver them. The buyer will meet any costs incurred if goods have been turned away and returned to a depot. Off-loading shall be the responsibility and at the cost of the buyer.
7.2 The date and place for delivery specified in the relevant confirmation of order may be changed at the request of the buyer with Salcom’s consent.
7.3 Salcom reserves the right to deliver the goods by instalments at times suitable to it in its sole discretion determined with reference to its manufacturing timetable.
7.4 Should Salcom fail to deliver or make defective delivery of one or more instalments this shall not entitle the buyer to repudiate the contract.
7.5 Salcom will not accept goods that have been damaged in transit for return where the buyer has indicated on its acceptance of delivery that they are in a satisfactory condition. Goods that are obviously damaged must be advised as such immediately on receipt.
7.6 Salcom will not accept liability for goods delivered to sites other than business premises or where buyer staff are not present to receipt the goods.
8.1 Any time for delivery of the goods shall be approximate only and shall not be deemed to be of the essence of the contract.

8.3 If the manufacture, supply or delivery of the goods is delayed by reason of or as a result of any act, omission, default or request by or on behalf of the buyer, Salcom may, without prejudice to its other rights and remedies, require payment by the buyer of such portion of the price as represents the extent to which Salcom has performed the contract or carried out work required by the contract up to the date such payment is required together with the any expenses or additional costs incurred by Salcom as a result of such delay. In the event of such delay continuing beyond a reasonable time, Salcom may, without prejudice to its other remedies, terminate the contract.
9.1 Risk of any loss, damage or deterioration of or to the goods shall be borne by the buyer from the date of delivery of the goods.
9.2 The buyer must notify Salcom in writing within three (3) working days of the date of delivery of the goods should there be any discrepancy in the goods which should have been delivered and the goods actually delivered including details of any deficiencies in quantity, quality and so on (the “Notice”). Upon Salcom’s receipt of the Notice, Salcom will have twenty (20) working days to investigate the details of discrepancies or deficiencies in respect of the goods as provided in the Notice before deciding on the appropriate course of action.
9.3 From the time of delivery until property in the goods passes to the buyer, the buyer will insure the goods against all appropriate risks and provide copies of all insurance policies or certificates of currency to Salcom on request.
9.4 If any of the goods are damaged or destroyed prior to property therein passing to the buyer, Salcom shall be entitled, without prejudice to any of its other rights or remedies under the contract, to receive all insurance proceeds which are payable in respect thereof (whether or not the price of such goods has become payable under the contract).
10.1 Unless the context otherwise requires terms and expressions in this clause 10 that are defined in the Personal Property Securities Act 1999 (“PPSA”) shall have the same meaning in this clause 10 as in the PPSA and references to the goods include references to any one of them.

10.7 The buyer agrees that sections 114(1) (a), 133 and 134 of the PPSA shall not apply on the enforcement by Salcom of any security interest created or provided for by the contract. The buyer also waives any rights it may have under sections 116, 119, 120(2), 121, 125, 129 and 131 of the PPSA on such enforcement.
10.8 The buyer acknowledges that they have read these Conditions of Sale and waives any right it may have to receive from Salcom a copy of any financing statement, financing change statement or verification statement that is registered, issued, or received at any time in relation to the contract.

10.11 Any payment received from the buyer may be applied by Salcom to all or part of the amount owing for any goods as Salcom sees fit irrespective of whether that payment is intended by the buyer to be for particular goods or in respect of a particular invoice.
10.12 Any payment received from the buyer that is not applied by Salcom under clause 10 shall first go towards satisfying the buyer’s obligation to pay for goods that, at the time of payment, have been sold by the buyer. The balance (if any) shall go towards satisfying the buyer’s obligation to pay for goods that have not been sold by the buyer. This provision shall apply irrespective of the order in which goods have been delivered to the buyer, any entry contained in a statement of account issued by Salcom, any rule of law or any other matter.
10.13 Clauses 10.11 and 10.12 shall apply to any payment received from the buyer irrespective of whether that payment is intended by the buyer to be for particular goods or in respect of a particular invoice.

11.1 Unless goods are returned pursuant to a warranty claim:

(b) The defective goods have been modified or incorrectly stored, maintained, installed or operated.

12.4 If Salcom fails to perform its warranty obligations under clause 12.1 hereof, Salcom’s liability for such failure shall be limited to replacement of the goods in question or damages (at Salcom’s discretion) which shall be subject to the limitation contained in clause 13.3.
