Tolerances as to dimensions, length etc. are those specified in the standard applicable to the material in question.

Payment terms are 30 days from the date of invoice. If payment is not received in time, default interest will be charged, at a rate of 12% at the present time.
If there is reason to suppose that the purchaser will not fulfil its obligations under the agreement, Harald Pihl AB is entitled to demand that reasonable security be provided in respect of fulfilment. If this does not occur within a reasonable period, Harald Pihl AB is entitled to cancel the purchase. This must be done in writing and applies to goods not yet supplied.
11. Notification of delay
If Harald Pihl AB finds that it is not possible to maintain the contractually agreed delivery time, the purchaser must be informed as soon as possible and a new delivery time agreed.
12. Compensation for delay, cancellation
A delay in delivery attributable to Harald Pihl AB does not constitute grounds for compensation, nor for cancellation, unless the parties have entered into written agreement to this effect.
Any possible compensation claim must be submitted in writing as soon as possible (10 days) after the date on which the delivery should have taken place.
If the customer cancels a purchase without valid reason during a current delivery period, compensation will be payable in the amount of 1/3 of the order value.
Material that is specified by a documented batch number will not be taken back if this information is missing.
Likewise, material that has been cut into lengths or cropped will not be taken back.
The goods must be accompanied by a packing note.
Upon receipt, the purchaser must inspect the goods. If the goods cannot be inspected immediately due to the nature of the packaging or for some other reason, the acceptance procedure should relate to the packing note and the number of packages.
If possible, a comparison should be made between the packing note and the details shown on the packaging.
After the packaging has been removed and before the goods have started to be used, a more thorough acceptance procedure must be carried out.
14. Complaint in the event of deficiencies or damage
The receiving party must record immediately on the packing note any defects or deficiencies in the goods supplied which might have occurred during shipment and must inform the forwarder and Harald Pihl AB accordingly. Material that is the subject of a complaint may not be used, but instead must be returned to Harald Pihl AB as soon as possible.

In other cases, deficiencies or damage must be reported as soon as possible after the discovery thereof.

Title to the material supplied by Harald Pihl AB passes to the purchaser when the purchase price has been paid in full.
17. Oversupplies or undersupplies
The seller is entitled to oversupply or undersupply up 10% of the quantity specified by the purchaser, unless otherwise agreed.
18. Choice of material/suitability
Harald Pihl AB is not liable for the suitability of the material for any particular purpose and therefore exempts itself from all liability. This does not apply if a written warranty has been supplied.
19. Grounds for exemption – Force Majeure
Harald Pihl AB will not be liable for delays or damage resulting from insuperable impediments such as natural disasters, fire, war, traffic disruption, strikes, lockout, blockades, or similar circumstances.
This also applies to other impediments that could not be foreseen when the agreement was entered into.
This also constitutes grounds for exemption for any sub-supplier affected by such circumstances.
