The buyers’ liabilities are to accept delivery of the goods and to pay for the goods within the time agreed. If the complaint is justified, the sellers have to make an adjustment, they have to offer the buyer some form of compensation. There are four possibilities: RETURN the goods at the sellers’ expenseREPLACE the faulty goods at the sellers’ expense REPAIR by the sellers or at the sellers’ expense . price REDUCTION

Complaints and claims may arise in connection with inferior quality of the goods, late delivery or non-delivery of the goods, transportation and insurance, storage of the goods and in many other cases. If the buyers fail to fulfill their obligation of paying on time, it is customary to send three reminders. This is a usual claims procedure. If the sellers fail to deliver the goods by the date due, he is penalized. The rate of penalty is fixed in the Penalty Clause. If the delay is longer than two months, the buyer has the option of cancelling the contract altogether but the seller is to compensate for the loss incurred. The sellers may inflict penalties on the buyers if there is a default in payment.

Contracts usually stipulate that in case of arbitration each party should appoint its arbitrator and they have to appoint an umpire. All the three constitute an arbitration tribunal whose award is final and binding upon both parties.
