The Purchase Order and these Conditions shall be deemed to be accepted on the earlier of: (a) the Supplier issuing a written acceptance of the Purchase Order; and (b) the Supplier doing any act consistent with fulfilling the Purchase Order, at which point and on which date the Contract shall come into existence.
    2.3    The Supplier waives any right it might otherwise have to rely on any term endorsed upon, delivered with or contained in any documents of the Supplier that is inconsistent with these Conditions.
     

  3. Delivery of Goods and provision of Services
    3.1    Unless otherwise instructed in writing by ADPCR's nominated representative, all Goods must be delivered and all Services must be performed at the time and place specified in the Contract. The Supplier shall supply ADPCR with details of the anticipated lead times between placing a Purchase Order and delivery of any Goods and the Supplier shall keep ADPCR informed of progress. Time shall be of the essence in relation to the performance of any and all of the Supplier's obligations pursuant to the Contract. The Supplier shall notify ADPCR if any delivery or performance is likely to be delayed beyond the specified date. Failure by the Supplier to notify any likely delay shall entitle ADPCR to terminate without liability for all or part of the Contract and/or to compensation for any Losses suffered by ADPCR.
    3.2    The Supplier shall ensure that: (a) all Goods are properly packed and secured in such manner as to enable them to reach their destination in good condition; (b) all deliveries of Goods are accompanied by a delivery note which shows the date of the Purchase Order, the Purchase Order number (if any), the type and quantity of the Goods being delivered (including the code number of the Goods, where applicable), special storage instructions (if any) and, if the Goods are being delivered by instalments, the outstanding balance of Goods remaining to be delivered; and (c) if the Supplier requires ADPCR to return any packaging material to the Supplier, that fact is clearly stated on the delivery note. Any such packaging material shall be returned to the Supplier at the cost of the Supplier.
    3.3    The Supplier shall deliver any Goods: (a) on the date specified in the Purchase Order or, if none is specified, within five Business Days of the date of the Purchase Order; (b) at the Delivery Location; and (c) during the period from 8.30 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. on any Business Day, or as otherwise instructed by ADPCR. Delivery of the Goods shall be completed on the completion of unloading the Goods at the Delivery Location.
    3.4    The Supplier shall meet any performance dates for the Services specified in the Purchase Order or that ADPCR notifies to the Supplier.
    3.5    If Goods or Services are incorrectly delivered the Supplier shall be responsible for additional expenses incurred in delivering them to the correct point specified in the Contract or subsequently advised in writing by ADPCR. The quantity of Goods or Services specified in the Contract may not be changed without ADPCR's prior written consent. Quantities of Goods or Services delivered in excess of those stated in the Contract may not be accepted.
    3.6    The Supplier shall not deliver the Goods in instalments without ADPCR's prior written consent. Where it is agreed that Goods are to be delivered in instalments, they may (at ADPCR's option) be invoiced and paid for separately. However, failure by the Supplier to deliver any one instalment on time or at all or any defect in an instalment shall entitle ADPCR to the remedies set out in clause 7 of these Conditions (without prejudice to ADPCR's other rights and remedies).
    3.7    The Supplier will, at its expense: (a) maintain the Bailed Property, including its repair or replacement, in the condition necessary to produce the Goods or provide the Services in accordance with the terms or the Purchase Order and be responsible for all wear and tear beyond normal wear and tear; (b) properly house the Bailed Property and insure them against loss or damage, even if it occurs despite the Supplier's exercise of due care; (c) prominently mark the Bailed Property as the property of ADPCR; and (d) refrain from mixing the Bailed Property with property owned by the Supplier or a third party.
    3.8    Upon ADPCR's request, the Supplier will deliver up and/or return the Bailed Property to ADPCR at the Supplier's plant or other location specified by ADPCR (and if, in breach of this clause 3.8, the Supplier refuses to return such items the Supplier authorises ADPCR and its nominated representatives to enter the Supplier's premises to recover such items). The Supplier is responsible for labour and other costs of dismounting, dismantling, and putting it into a condition and place ready for removal. The Supplier will cooperate with ADPCR in removing the Bailed Property from the location of the Supplier or subcontractor.
     

  4. Passing of title and risk in Goods
    4.1    Title and risk in the Goods shall pass to ADPCR on completion of delivery at the Delivery Location or, if ADPCR has agreed in the Purchase Order to collect the Goods from the Supplier's premises or another agreed location, collection of the Goods at that location by a duly authorised ADPCR representative.
    4.2    Neither payment by, nor passing of title or risk in the Goods or the Services to, ADPCR shall be deemed to constitute acceptance of the Goods or the Services.
     

  5.  Price and payment terms

The price is exclusive of VAT and, unless otherwise agreed in writing by ADPCR, shall be inclusive of the costs of all packaging, delivery and insurance.

Payment shall be made within 60 calendar days from the end of the month of receipt of the relevant invoice by ADPCR. 
    5.3    Without prejudice to any other right or remedy which ADPCR may have, ADPCR reserves the right to set off any amount owing at any time by the Supplier to ADPCR, whether under the Contract or any other agreement which may exist from time to time between the parties, against any amount payable by the Supplier to ADPCR under the Contract.
    5.4    The correct Purchase Order number (if any) must be quoted on all invoices, and ADPCR will accept no liability whatsoever for invoices, delivery notes or other communications which do not bear such Purchase Order numbers.
    5.5    In the event ADPCR reasonably considers that any invoice submitted by the Supplier is defective or relates to Goods supplied or Services performed otherwise than in accordance with the Supplier's obligations under the Contract, ADPCR shall be entitled to withhold payment of the disputed amount (without prejudice to any other rights or remedies it may have) pending resolution of the dispute between the parties (each acting in good faith).
