Export Policy

Where the Goods are supplied for export from the United Kingdom, the provisions of the clause shall (subject to any special terms agreed in writing between the Buyer and the Seller) apply notwithstanding any other provision of these Conditions.

If there is a requirement, the Buyer shall be responsible for arranging for the testing and inspection of the Goods at the Seller’s premises before shipment. The Seller shall have no liability for any claim in respect of any defect in the Goods which would be apparent on inspection and which are made after shipment, or in respect of any damage during transit.

Payment of all amounts due to the Seller shall be made by confirmed irrevocable letter of credit opened by the Buyer in favour of the Seller and confirmed by a bank in the UK acceptable to the Seller or, if the Seller has agreed in Writing on or before acceptance of the Buyer’s order to waive this requirement, by acceptance by the Buyer and delivery to the Seller of a bill of exchange drawn on the Buyer payable 30 days after sight to the order of the Seller at such branch of HSBC Bank plc in England as may be specified in the bill of exchange or by Telegraphic Transfer with the order.
