FFIC Limited Conditions of Sale




These are the conditions governing the sale of goods (“Goods”) sold by FUJIFILM Imaging Colorants Limited (“Seller”). These conditions apply to the exclusion of any other terms that any buyer (“Buyer”) seeks to impose or incorporate, or which are implied by trade, custom, practice or course of dealing. No modification of these conditions shall be of any effect unless expressly accepted by Seller in writing and no such modification shall be effected by the acknowledgement of receipt of Buyer’s order or other document(s) containing terms or conditions inconsistent herewith.


Seller shall issue a quotation, either in the form of a letter, pro-forma invoice, or otherwise, to enable Buyer to place an order for Goods. Any order placed by Buyer constitutes an offer by Buyer to purchase Goods in accordance with these conditions. Seller shall have no obligation to accept Buyer’s order. Such order shall only be deemed to be accepted when Seller issues a written acceptance of the order, at which point a contract for sale to Buyer of the Goods ordered shall come into existence (“Contract”). A Contract constitutes the entire agreement between the parties. Buyer acknowledges that it has not relied on any statement, promise or representation made or given by or on behalf of Seller which is not set out in a Contract.


3.1 The price of Goods shall be as stated in the quotation issued by Seller to Buyer and unless otherwise stated is exclusive of VAT and the costs and charges of packaging, insurance and transport of Goods, which shall all be paid by Buyer on receipt of a valid VAT invoice.

3.2 For Goods to be delivered in the United Kingdom, payment shall be made by net cash due within 30 days of the date of the invoice or before delivery, if required. For Goods to be delivered outside the United Kingdom, payment shall be made as stated in the quotation issued by Seller to Buyer. Payment in either case shall be deemed not to have been made until the full price stated in the quotation shall have been received by Seller. All sums shall be paid in full by Buyer without set-off or deduction except as required by law.

3.3 If Buyer fails to make any payment due to Seller under any Contract by the due date for payment (due date), then Buyer shall pay interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% per annum above Barclays Bank PLC's base lending rate from time to time. Such interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. Buyer shall pay the interest together with the overdue amount.


4.1 Delivery shall be made in accordance with the directions as to delivery stated in Buyer’s order. In respect of Goods to be delivered outside the United Kingdom:

(a) terms used in a Contract, unless otherwise stated, shall be defined in accordance with INCOTERMS 2010; and

(b) Buyer shall be responsible for ensuring due compliance with all local legal requirements in respect of the import, sale, distribution, storage, insurance or use of Goods and for paying any government duty or tax applicable.

4.2 Any dates quoted for delivery are approximate only, and the time of delivery is not of the essence. Seller shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of Goods that is caused by Buyer’s failure to provide Seller with adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Goods.

4.3 In cases of non-delivery of, damage to or shortage in any consignment, Buyer shall advise both carrier and Seller in writing (other than by a qualified signature on the carrier’s consignment note or delivery document) at the earliest opportunity and, in the case of damage or shortage, in any event not more than 10 days after delivery. In the absence of prompt written advice from Buyer to both carrier and Seller, the Goods shall be deemed to have been delivered and accepted by Buyer complete and in a satisfactory condition.


Risk to Goods delivered in the United Kingdom shall pass to Buyer on delivery. Risk to Goods delivered outside the United Kingdom shall pass to Buyer under INCOTERMS 2010.


6.1 Title to Goods shall not pass to Buyer until Seller has received payment in full (in cash or cleared funds) for (i) the Goods; and (ii) any other goods or services that Seller has supplied to Buyer in respect of which payment has become due. Until title to Goods has passed to Buyer, the Buyer shall:

(a) hold the Goods on a fiduciary basis as Seller’s bailee;

(b) store the Goods, until they are used, separately from materials which are not Seller’s property and in a manner which makes them readily identifiable as Seller’s property;

(c) not remove, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the Goods;

(d) maintain the Goods in satisfactory condition and keep them insured against all risks for their full price from the date of delivery;

(e) notify Seller immediately if it becomes subject to any of the events listed in paragraphs (c) or (d) of condition 10.1; and

(f) give Seller such information about the Goods as Seller may require from time to time,

but Buyer may resell or use the Goods in the ordinary course of its business.

6.2 If before title to Goods passes to Buyer, Buyer becomes subject to any of the events listed in paragraphs (c) or (d) of condition 10.1, or Seller reasonably believes that any such event is about to happen and notifies Buyer accordingly, then, provided that the Goods have not been resold, or irrevocably incorporated into another product, and without limiting any other right or remedy Seller may have, Seller may at any time require Buyer to deliver up the Goods and, if Buyer fails to do so promptly, enter any premises of Buyer or of any third party where the Goods are stored in order to recover them.


Seller gives notice to Buyer that Seller has available information and product literature concerning the conditions necessary to ensure that Goods will be safe and without risk to health when properly used. If Buyer is not already in possession of such literature or requires any information or advice in connection with the safe use of Goods, Buyer should immediately contact Seller.

(c) the defect arises as a result of Seller following any drawing, design or specification supplied by Buyer;

(d) Buyer alters such Goods without the written consent of Seller; or

(e) the defect arises as a result of wilful damage, negligence, or abnormal storage or working conditions.

8.5 No complaint arising in respect of any lot or batch of Goods shall entitle Buyer to reject or refuse delivery of all or any following deliveries of Goods ordered by Buyer.

8.6 Except as provided in this condition 8, Seller shall have no liability to Buyer in respect of Goods' failure to comply with the warranty set out in condition 8.1.

8.7 Except as set out in these conditions, all warranties, conditions and other terms implied by statute or common law are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, excluded from any Contract.

10.1 Seller may (without prejudice to its other rights) require payment in advance of delivery, suspend delivery or terminate a Contract forthwith by written notice to Buyer:

(a) if Seller shall not on the due date have received the full price of the Goods supplied and any other sums due from Buyer (whether due in connection with the supply of Goods or otherwise), or

(a) Seller is prevented from or hindered or delayed in manufacturing or acquiring Goods or delivering them by normal route or means of delivery through any event beyond Seller's reasonable control, which by its nature could not have been foreseen, or, if it could have been foreseen, was unavoidable, including industrial disputes (whether involving its own workforce or a third party's), failure of energy sources or transport network, acts of God, war, terrorism, riot, civil commotion, interference by civil or military authorities, national or international calamity, armed conflict, malicious damage, breakdown of plant or machinery, nuclear, chemical or biological contamination, sonic boom, explosions, collapse of building structures, fires, floods, storms, earthquakes, loss at sea, epidemics or similar events, natural disasters or extreme adverse weather conditions, or default of suppliers or subcontractors;

11.2 Following any such cancellation or reduction and during any such period of delay, Seller shall be under no liability arising out of Seller’s failure to deliver. 


A waiver of any right or remedy under a Contract is only effective if given in writing and shall not be deemed a waiver of any subsequent breach or default. No failure or delay by a party to exercise any right or remedy provided under a Contract or by law shall constitute a waiver of that or any other right or remedy, nor shall it preclude or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. 


If any court or competent authority finds that any provision of a Contract (or part of any provision) is invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that provision or part-provision shall, to the extent required, be deemed to be deleted, and the validity and enforceability of the other provisions of such Contract shall not be affected. If any invalid, unenforceable or illegal provision of a Contract would be valid, enforceable and legal if some part of it were deleted, the provision shall apply with the minimum modification necessary to make it legal, valid and enforceable.


Seller may at any time assign, transfer, charge, subcontract or deal in any other manner with all or any of its rights or obligations under a Contract. Buyer may not assign, transfer, charge, subcontract or deal in any other manner with all or any of its rights or obligations under a Contract without the prior written consent of Seller.
