1.2 These Terms and Conditions shall be incorporated into the Contract and shall apply to the exclusion of any conditions of the Buyer. These Terms and Conditions may not be varied or waived except with the express written agreement of NT. The failure of NT to enforce its rights under the Contract at any time, for any period of time, shall not be construed as a waiver of any such rights.

2. Prices and Quotations

All quotations issued by NT for the supply of Products and/or Services shall remain open for acceptance for the period stated in the quotation or, if none is stated, for sixty (60) days.

NT’s sole obligation shall be, at its option, to replace or repair any defective Products or refund the purchase price of any undelivered Products.

Where the Equipment requires installation, the Buyer shall be responsible at its own cost for making the place where the Equipment will be located ready for installation in accordance with NT’s instructions. Installation will not begin unless such responsibilities are completed.
Following installation, and where applicable, NT will proceed with final testing using NT’s published performance specifications and using its standard instruments and procedures. Upon the satisfactory completion of such final testing demonstrating compliance with the above specifications (with any permitted variations/tolerances) NT may issue a Test Certificate which shall be conclusive evidence of such compliance and thereupon installation of the Equipment shall be deemed to be complete and in compliance with NT’s obligations under the Contract. In any event Buyer agrees that the Equipment is accepted (i) seven (7) days after the date on which NT notifies Buyer that final testing was successfully completed, or issues the Test Certificate or (ii) on the date Buyer first uses the Equipment for operational use, whichever is earlier.
Buyer, at its reasonable request, shall be entitled to be present at and to witness the testing and shall not be entitled to raise any objection to testing carried out, or to the results thereof, if Buyer failed to attend when advised that testing was to take place.
