General sales and delivery terms for Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro




Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro’s sales and delivery terms are binding on the parties and thereby override all agreements and practices that are contrary to the terms, including terms prepared and forwarded by the purchaser, unless otherwise stated in the order confirmation forwarded by Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro.



Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro will, at the earliest, be bound by statements issued by Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro, no matter how these are characterised, once Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro has sent its confirmation of an order. The contract is finally entered into when Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro has sent its confirmation of the order, although Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro is entitled to retract this until such time as the confirmation of the order has come to the knowledge of the purchaser.



No independent person/company, such as an agent, representative or broker, is authorised to bind Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro without a written contract to this effect.



All information and data to be found in Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro’s product information material and price lists is only binding to the extent that the contract expressly refers to them.


All prices in relation to pricelists drawn up by Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro are today’s prices, excluding VAT, other official charges and dispatch packaging. Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro retains the right to change its price lists and catalogue material without notice.


If rises of more than 5% occur in production and delivery costs and in the prices of Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro’s suppliers in the time up to the delivery, Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro is entitled to adjust the price in respect of these documented rises in costs.


Likewise, the price is based on the rate of exchange applying at the time of entering into the contract.

Changes of more than 5% to the rate of exchange nevertheless entitle Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro to adjust the price.



Delivery takes place Incoterms EXW Skierniewice, after which the purchaser, when the item is finished and ready for delivery, bears the risk of all costs of delivery, including transport costs. The purchaser is obliged to provide information in good time on which method of dispatch he wishes to use. Otherwise Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro is entitled to choose the means and route of transport.


If, instead of stating a specific time of delivery, the parties have stated a period of time during which the delivery is to take place, this period of time is deemed to run from the time the contract is entered into on the condition that all technical details and formalities for the execution of the order exist at that point in time. Otherwise the delivery time is reckoned from the point in time when all matters have been settled.


In the event of delayed delivery, Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro is obliged to immediately advise the purchaser of this and the purchaser is entitled to cancel the contact and demand compensation if the delay is considerable. Considerable delay cannot be deemed to occur until at least 30 days from the agreed time of delivery. The purchaser may not, however, assert the rights mentioned if the delay was due to the purchaser’s or a subsupplier’s circumstances. The purchaser may not, under any circumstances, demand compensation for indirect losses, including loss of use, operational losses and assert any additional rights.


In the event that a purchaser does not accept delivery at the time of delivery, including failing to fulfil his obligation to pick up the delivery, Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro is entitled to cancel the contract and assert its right to compensation. Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro is, furthermore, entitled to sell off or store the goods on behalf of the purchaser. In the event of storage the goods are left at the customer’s risk.


The return of goods and packaging may only take place following prior written agreement and will, in any such case, be at the customer’s expense. Pallets, cases or other packaging that is debited separately will not be credited.



Payment is to be made in cash on receipt of the item (COD).


In the event of delayed payment, interest will be added at 2% per month entered into calculated from the due date and until such time as payment is made.


The purchaser is not entitled to use the purchase amount or any part thereof for setting off, just as any complaint from the purchaser in accordance with point 10 does not entitle the purchaser to hold back the purchase amount.


The right of ownership to the goods sold remains with Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro until the entire purchase amount is paid. Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro is entitled to take back the sold goods if the purchaser entirely or partly fails to fulfil his payment obligation.

The acceptance of bills of exchange of any other payment obligation is not considered payment until full redemption has taken place.


If the purchaser fails to meet one or more of the obligations stated, including his obligations in accordance with point 5, Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro is entitled to cancel the agreement, sell the item at the purchaser’s expense to another party and/or assert its right to compensation.



All Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro’s products are carefully inspected and tested at the factory prior to delivery. Acceptance tests are carried out during normal working hours. If technical requirements for the test are not specifi ed in the contract, this is to be carried out in accordance with usual practice in the Danish electronics industry.


The purchaser has the right to be present at the acceptance test if he expresses an interest in doing so.


If, during the acceptance test, the product is shown to be not in accordance with the contract, Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro is to ensure as quickly as possible that the product is brought into line with the contract.


Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro bears all costs of acceptance tests that are carried out at the company. The purchaser, however, bears all travel and subsistence costs for his representative in connection with their participation at acceptance tests.


If the purchaser desires an examination that is more extensive than Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro’s customary acceptance tests, the specification of the test desired is to be approved by Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro when entering into the contract.

Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro will require a special fee for such a test.


If the acceptance test is to take place at the premises of the purchaser, this is to be agreed separately when the contract is being entered into and the purchaser bears all costs for the arrangement of the acceptance test, including transport and costs of arranging for the participation in the test of Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro’s representatives.



Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro offers a one-year guarantee on all products delivered from the date of delivery. If item supplied is used more intensively than agreed or could have been assumed when the contract was entered into, the guarantee period will be shortened proportionately.


The guarantee only covers products that are demonstrably essentially defective or deficient resulting from defective performance or use of poor materials that are supplied by Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro.

The guarantee only applies if the items are properly stored and have been used correctly and for conventional use by the purchaser according to Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro’s specifications.

If products or intermediate products consist of non-Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro made products, Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro is only responsible to the extent that its suppliers have undertaken a guarantee without regard for the provision stated here in point 8.

If Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro chooses to carry out the replacement of defective parts, the components replaced will become the property of Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro.

In the case of components that are replaced or repaired, Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro offers a one-year guarantee from the date of repair as stated above at point 8.1. On the other hand, the guarantee period for other elements of the product is not extended.

In such events Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro is entitled to extend the delivery time correspondingly or to cancel the contract. As soon as the hindrance has ceased, each of the parties is bound in accordance with the contract unless Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro has previously cancelled the contract. A hindrance of more than 6 months entitles either of the parties to cancel the agreement.


In the event that a force majeure situation arises, Scandinavian Transformer/TransElectro undertakes to immediately inform the purchaser of this.
