Previous delivery delays do not undermine the Buyer’s obligation to accept further deliveries of the Goods.

If the Goods are packed, the Buyer must take the necessary measures to prevent humidity condensation in the packaging. In this case, the Buyer must inspect the Goods without undue delay after the removal of the obstacle that prevented him from performing the inspection upon the takeover of the Goods. If the Buyer breaches his duty to store the Goods under this paragraph, and if, subsequently, the Goods are returned to the Seller due to the Seller’s liability for defective Goods, the Seller may claim that the Buyer pay damages for the defective Goods up to 70% of the price of the returned Goods (the exact amount to be determined by the Seller at his discretion, usually depending on the extent of the damage to the Goods).

The invoice must contain all statutory requirements; otherwise the Buyer may return the invoice without making the payment. In this case, a new period commences from the date of the delivery of the corrected invoice.
