Standard Conditions of Contract

Issued by the British Printing Industries Federation

Where appropriate for 'printer' read 'binder'

Price variation
Estimates are based on the printer's current costs of production and, unless otherwise agreed, are subject to amendment or at any time after acceptance to meet any rise or fall in such costs.

Tax
Except in the case of a customer who is not contracting in the course of a business not holding himself out as doing so, the printer reserves the right to change the amount of any value added tax payable whether or not included on the estimate or invoice.

Preliminary work
All work carried out, whether experimentally or otherwise, at customer's request shall be charged.

Copy
A charge may be made to cover any additional work involved where copy supplied is not clear and legible.

Proofs
Proofs of all work may be submitted for customer's approval and the printer shall incur no liability for any errors not corrected by the customer in proofs so submitted. Customer's alterations and additional proofs necessitated there-by shall be charged extra. When style, type or layout is left to the printer's judgment, changes therefrom made by the customer shall be charged extra.

Delivery and payment
(a) Delivery of work shall be accepted when tendered and thereupon or, if earlier, on notification that the work has been completed the ownership shall pass and payment shall become due.
(b) Unless otherwise specified the price quoted is for delivery of the work to the customer's address as set out in the estimate. A charge may be made to cover any extra costs involved for delivery to a different address.
(c) Should expedited delivery be agreed an extra may be charged to cover any overtime or any other additional costs involved.
(d) Should work be suspended at the request of or delayed through any default of the customer for a period of 30 days the printer shall then be entitled to payment for work already carried out, materials specially ordered and other   additional   costs including storage.

Variations in quantity
Every endeavour will be made to deliver the correct quantity ordered, but estimates are conditional upon margins of 5 per cent for work in one colour only and 10 per cent for other work being allowed for overs or shortage (4 per cent and 8 per cent respectively for quantities exceeding 50,000) the same to be charged or deducted.

Claims
Advice of damage, delay or partial loss of goods in transit or of non­ delivery must be given in writing to the printer and the carrier within three clear days of delivery (or, in the case of non-delivery, within 28 days of dispatch of the goods) and any claim in respect thereof must be made in writing   to   the   printer   and   the   carrier within seven clear days of delivery  (or, in the case  of  non-delivery,  within 42 days of  dispatch). All other claims must be made in writing to the printer within 28 days of delivery. The printer shall not be liable in respect of any claim unless the afore­ mentioned requirements have been complied with except in any particular case where the customer proves that (ii) it was not possible to comply with the requirements and (ii) advice (where required) was given and the claim made as soon as reasonably possible.

Liability
The printer shall not be liable for any loss to the customer arising from delay in transit not caused by the printer.

Standing material
(a) Metal, film, glass and other materials owned by the printer and used by him in the production of type, plates, moulds, stereotypes, electrotypes, film-setting, negatives, positives and the like shall remain his exclusive property. Such items when supplied by the customer shall remain the customer's   property.
(b) type may be distributed and lithographic, photogravure or other work effaced immediately after the order is executed unless written arrangements are made to the contrary. In the latter event, rent may be charged.

Materials supplied by the customer
(a) The printer may reject any paper, plates or other materials supplied or specified by the customer, which appear to him to be unsuitable. Additional cost incurred if materials are found to  be  unsuitable during production may be charged except that if the whole or any part of such additional cost could have been avoided but for unreasonable delay by the printer in ascertaining the unsuitability of the materials then that amount shall not be charged to the customer. (b) Where materials are so supplied or specified, the printer will take every care to secure the best results, but responsibility will not be accepted for    imperfect work caused by defects in or unsuitability of materials so supplied or specified.
(c) Quantities of materials supplied shall be adequate to cover normal spoilage.

(e) The company may at any time revoke the customer's power of sale by notice to the customer if the customer is in default for longer than 7 days in the payment of any sum whatsoever due to the company (whether in respect of the goods or any other goods supplied or services rendered at any time by the company to the customer or for any other reason whatsoever) or if any bill of Exchange cheque or other negotiable instrument drawn or accepted by the customer in favour of the company is dishonoured on presentation for payment or if the company has bona fide doubts as to the solvency of the  customer.
(f)   The customer's power of sale shall automatically cease if a receiver is appointed over any of the assets or the undertaking of the customer or a winding up order is made against the customer or the customer goes into voluntary liquidation (otherwise than for the purpose of reconstruction or amalgamation) or calls a meeting of or makes any arrangement or composition with creditors or commits any act of bankruptcy.
(g)  Upon determination of the customer's power of  sale under  (el  or  (fl  above  the customer shall place the goods and the new products at the disposal of the customer who shall be entitled to enter upon any premises of the customer for the purpose of removing such goods and new products from the premises (including severance from realty if necessary).

Illegal matter
(a) The printer shall not be required to print any matter, which in his opinion is or may be of an illegal or libelous nature or an infringement of the proprietary or other rights of any third party.
(b) The printer shall be indemnified by the customer in respect of any claims, costs and expenses arising out of any libelous matter or any infringement of copyright, patent, design, or of any other proprietary or personal rights contained in any material printed for the customer. The indemnity shall extend to any amounts paid on a lawyer's advice in settlement of any claim.

Periodical publications
A contract for the printing of a periodical publication may not be terminated by either party unless 13 weeks notice in writing is given in the case of periodicals  produced monthly or more frequently  or 26 weeks notice in writing is given in the case of other periodicals. Notice may be given at any time but wherever possible should be given after completion of work on any one issue. Nevertheless the printer may terminate any such contract forthwith should any sum due thereunder remain unpaid.

Force Majeure
The printer shall be under no liability if he shall be unable to carry out any provision of the contract for any reason beyond his control including (without limiting the foregoing) Act of God, legislation, war, fire, flood, drought, failure of power supply, lock-out, strike or other action taken by employees in contemplation of furtherance of a dispute or owing to any inability to procure materials required for the performance of the contract. During the continuance of such a contingency the    customer may by written notice to the printer elect to terminate the contract and pay for work done and materials used, but subject thereto shall otherwise accept delivery when available.
