Terms & Conditions for Purchase

General Terms and Conditions of Purchase


Seller acknowledges and agrees that these General Terms and Conditions are incorporated in, and a part of, this contract and each purchase order, release, requisition, work order, shipping instruction, specification and other document, whether expressed in written form, by electronic data interchange or other tangible format, relating to the goods and/or services to be provided by Seller pursuant to this contract (such documents are collectively referred to as this “Contract”).  Seller acknowledges and agrees that it has read and understands these General Terms and Conditions.  If Seller accepts this Contract in writing or commences any of the work or services which are the subject of this Contract, Seller will be deemed to have accepted this Contract and these General Terms and Conditions in their entirety without modification.  Any additions to, changes in, modifications of, or revisions of this Contract (including these General Terms and Conditions) which Seller proposes will be deemed to be rejected by Buyer except to the extent that an authorized employee of Buyer expressly agrees to accept any such proposals in writing.


Buyer may at any time make changes in drawings, designs, specifications, materials, packaging, time and place of delivery, method of transportation or other terms of this Order, which changes Buyer shall document in writing and which Seller shall immediately implement. If any such changes cause an increase or decrease in the cost or the time required for performance, an equitable adjustment shall be reflected in Buyer’s written change notice, without which Seller has no authority to proceed. Seller agrees to accept any and all changes subject to this paragraph.  In order to assist in the determination of any equitable adjustment in price or delivery schedules, Seller will, as requested, provide information to Buyer, including documentation of changes in Seller’s cost of production and the time to implement such changes.  In the event of any disagreement arising out of such changes, Buyer and Seller will work to resolve the disagreement in good faith, provided, however, that Seller will continue performing under this Contract, including the manufacture and delivery of goods and prompt implementation of changes required by Buyer, while Buyer and Seller resolve any disagreement arising out of such changes.

Seller agrees to communicate any changes to the products or services detailed in the Contract so that the Buyer may determine whether the changes may affect the quality of a finished device.

Any change in price without Baylis Medical Technologies Inc.’s prior written consent is expressly rejected.

    • 4.5 Premium Shipments. If Seller fails to have goods ready for shipment in time to meet Buyer’s delivery schedules using the method of transportation originally specified by Buyer and, as a result, Buyer requires Seller to ship the goods using a premium (more expeditious) method of transportation, Seller will ship the goods as expeditiously as possible. Seller will pay, and be responsible for, the entire cost of such premium shipment, unless Buyer’s actions caused Seller to fail to meet Buyer’s delivery schedules, in which case Buyer will pay any costs for premium shipment.
    • 4.6 Volume Forecasts. Buyer may provide Seller with estimates, forecasts or projections of its future anticipated volume or quantity requirements for goods. Seller acknowledges that any such forecasts are provided for informational purposes only and, like any other forward looking projections, are based on a number of economic and business factors, variables and assumptions, some or all of which may change over time.  Buyer makes no representation, warranty, guaranty or commitment of any kind or nature, express or implied, regarding any such forecasts provided to Seller, including with respect to the accuracy or completeness of such forecasts.


    • 5.1 – Upon notice, Buyer may make inspection visit(s) at the site where the goods are being designed or manufactured or services performed. Upon request, Seller shall provide Buyer with written or verbal reports relating to the status of its performance hereunder. No inspection, testing, delivery nor payment for the goods and services delivered hereunder shall constitute acceptance thereof. Buyer may reject any goods or services which are in Buyer’s judgment defective or nonconforming. Goods rejected or those which are supplied in excess of quantities called for herein may be returned to Seller at its expense. In addition, Buyer may charge Seller all expenses of unpacking, examining, repacking and reshipping such goods. In the event Buyer receives goods or services whose defects or nonconformity are not apparent on examination, Buyer reserves the right to require replacement, as well as payment of damages. Nothing in this Order shall relieve the Seller from the obligations of testing, inspection and quality control.
    • 5.2 – Seller agrees (a) that all goods delivered hereunder shall have the maximum shelf life possible and, in any event, no goods delivered hereunder shall have less than two (2) years shelf life remaining at the time of delivery, based on the dating included on such goods’ packaging. If shelf life is outside of this, written consent must be received from the BUYER prior to shipment., (b) If SELLER wishes to change the Specifications, Facility, equipment, process, materials, inspection or testing of any goods, SELLER shall  notify BUYER in writing thirty (30) days prior to implementation of such changes.  SELLER shall be responsible for all costs and expenses related to such change.

    • 5.5 – Buyer is not required to perform incoming inspections of any goods, and Seller waives any right to require Buyer to conduct any such inspections.

If Seller is unable to produce, sell or deliver any goods or services covered by this Contract, or Buyer is unable to accept delivery, buy or use any goods or services covered by this Contract, as a result of an event or occurrence beyond the reasonable control of the affected party and without such party’s fault or negligence, then any delay or failure to perform under this Contract that results from such event or occurrence will be excused for only so long as such event or occurrence continues, provided, however, that the affected party gives written notice of each such delay (including the anticipated duration of the delay) to the other party as soon as possible after the event or occurrence (but in no event more than three (3) days thereafter).  Such events and occurrences may include, by way of example and not limitation, natural disasters, fires, floods, windstorms, severe weather, explosions, riots, wars, sabotage, labor problems (including lockouts, strikes and slowdowns), equipment breakdowns and power failures.  During any delay or failure to perform by Seller, Buyer may (i) purchase substitute goods from other available sources, in which case the quantities under this Contract will be reduced by the quantities of such substitute goods and Seller will reimburse Buyer for any additional costs to Buyer of obtaining the substitute goods compared to the prices set forth in this Contract and/or (ii) have Seller provide substitute goods from other available sources in quantities and at times Buyer requests and at the prices set forth in this Contract.  If Seller fails to provide adequate assurances that any delay will not exceed thirty (30) days or if any delay lasts more than thirty (30) days, Buyer may terminate this Contract without any liability to Seller or obligation to purchase raw materials, work-in-process or finished goods.

If any goods are reasonably determined to fail to conform to the warranties set forth in this Contract, Seller shall reimburse Buyer for all reasonable losses, costs and damages caused by such nonconforming goods.  Such costs and damages may include, without limitation, costs, expenses and losses of Buyer and/or its customers arising from (i) inspection, sorting, repair or replacement of any nonconforming goods or any system or component that incorporates such nonconforming goods, (ii) production interruptions or slowdowns, and (iii) field service campaigns and other corrective service actions, including, without limitation, the amounts paid to distributors and/or dealers for materials and replacement parts (including reasonable markup to recover administrative costs or other capital expenses) and the labor costs to perform such work.

Buyer may terminate all or any part of this Contract without any liability to Seller or obligation to purchase raw materials, work-in-process or finished goods if Seller (a) repudiates, breaches, or threatens to breach any of the terms of this Contract, including Seller’s warranties, (b) fails to perform or threatens not to perform services or deliver goods in accordance with this Contract or (c) fails to assure timely and proper completion of services or delivery of goods.

In addition to any other rights of Buyer to terminate this Contract, Buyer may immediately terminate all or any part of this Contract, at any time and for any reason, by notifying Seller in writing.  Upon such termination, Buyer may, at its option, purchase from Seller any or all raw materials, work‑in‑process and finished goods inventory related to the goods under this Contract which are useable and in a merchantable condition.  The purchase price for such finished goods, raw materials and work‑in‑process, and Seller’s sole and exclusive recovery from Buyer (without regard to the legal theory which is the basis for any claim by Seller) on account of such termination, will be (a) the contract price for all goods or services that have been completed in accordance with this Contract as of termination date and delivered and accepted by Buyer and not previously paid for, plus (b) the actual costs of work‑in‑process and raw materials incurred by Seller in furnishing the goods or services under this Contract to the extent such costs are reasonable in amount and are properly allocable or apportionable under generally accepted accounting principles to the terminated portion of this Contract less (c) the reasonable value or cost (whichever is higher) of any goods or materials used or sold by Seller with Buyer’s written consent.  In no event will Buyer be required to pay for finished goods, work-in-process or raw materials which Seller fabricates or procures in amounts that exceed those Buyer authorizes in delivery releases nor will Buyer be required to pay for any goods or materials that are in Seller’s standard stock or that are readily marketable.  Payments made under this Article will not exceed the aggregate price for finished goods that would be produced by Seller under delivery or release schedules outstanding at the date of termination.  Within thirty (30) days after the effective date of termination, Seller will submit a comprehensive termination claim to Buyer, with sufficient supporting data to permit an audit by Buyer, and will thereafter promptly furnish any supplemental and supporting information Buyer requests.

    The rights and remedies reserved to Buyer in this Contract are cumulative with, and in addition to, all other or further remedies provided in law or equity.  To the extent that this Contract is for the supply of goods for use as, or fabrication into, parts, components or systems, Seller acknowledges and agrees that money damages would not be a sufficient remedy for any actual, anticipatory or threatened breach of this Contract by Seller with respect to its delivery of goods to Buyer and that, in addition to all other rights and remedies which Buyer may have, Buyer shall be entitled to specific performance and injunctive or other equitable relief as a remedy for any such breach.


    With respect to any monetary obligations of Seller or Seller’s affiliates to Buyer or Buyer’s affiliates, including, without limitation, direct and indirect losses, costs and damages resulting from Seller’s failure to timely delivery goods or services, the failure of any goods or service to conform to applicable warranties or other breach by Seller of this Contract, Buyer may at any time, as applicable, recover, recoup or setoff such amounts by deducting such amounts from any sums that are, or will become, owing, due or payable to Seller or Seller’s affiliates by Buyer or Buyer’s affiliates.


    Seller will not, in any manner, advertise or publish that Seller has contracted to furnish Buyer the goods or services covered by this Contract or use any trademarks or trade names of Buyer in Seller’s goods, advertising or promotional materials unless Buyer consents in writing.


    The failure of either party at any time to require performance by the other party of any provision of this Contract will not affect the right to require such performance at any later time, nor will the waiver by either party of a breach of any provision of this Contract constitute a waiver of any succeeding breach of the same or any other provision.  No failure or delay in exercising any right or remedy will operate as a waiver thereof nor will any single or partial exercise thereof preclude other or further exercise thereof.  No course of dealing or course of performance may be used to evidence a waiver or limitation of Seller’s obligations under this Contract.


    Seller may not subcontract any part of this Order beyond that customary in the conduct of its business without Buyer’s prior written consent. Seller may not assign this Order or amounts due hereunder without Buyer’s written consent.


    Seller and Buyer are independent contracting parties.  Nothing in this Contract makes either party the agent or legal representative of the other for any purpose whatsoever, nor grants either party any authority to assume or create any obligation on behalf of or in the name of the other party.


    This contract shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the province of Ontario, and those laws of Canada applicable therein, without regard to choice of law provisions, and not by the 1980 U.N. Convention on contracts for the international sale of goods. The parties agree that jurisdiction over and venue in any legal proceeding arising out of or relating to this contract shall be in the Superior Court of Justice for the province of Ontario.


    If any provision of this Contract is invalid or unenforceable under any statute, regulation, ordinance, executive order or other rule of law, such provision will be deemed reformed or deleted, as the case may be, but only to the extent necessary to comply with such statute, regulation, ordinance, order or rule, and the remaining provisions of this Contract will remain in full force and effect.


    All rights of Seller to commence any court action or proceeding with respect to this Order shall terminate one (1) year after the cause of action has accrued.


    In the event Buyer is involved in any litigation with respect to this Order, Buyer shall recover from Seller its costs and attorneys’ fees incurred in enforcing or defending its rights hereunder.


    This Contract, together with the attachments, exhibits, supplements or other terms of Buyer specifically referenced in this Contract, constitutes the entire agreement between Seller and Buyer with respect to the matters contained in this Contract and supersedes all prior oral or written representations and agreements.  This Contract may only be modified by a written contract amendment issued by Buyer.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, Buyer explicitly reserves, and this Contract will not constitute a waiver or release of, any rights and claims against Seller arising out of, or relating to, any fraud or duress in connection with the formation of this Contract or any breach or anticipatory breach of any previously existing contract between Buyer and Seller (whether or not such previously existing contract related to the same or similar goods or subject matter as this Contract).  All payments by Buyer to Seller under this Contract are without prejudice to Buyer’s claims, rights, or remedies.


    Buyer may provide various translated versions of these General Terms and Conditions for informational purposes only.  However, the original English language version of these General Terms and Conditions will apply in the event of any disagreement over the meaning or construction of any provisions of these General Terms and Conditions.
