General conditions of sale



The information in our leaflets, catalogues, drawings, photographs and projects is not binding; we expressly reserve the right to modify the arrangement, the form, the dimension, the materials and the weight of the products shown therein.


If products are produced according to outside drawings, our works’ norms will be used unless other norms are expressly requested and confirmed by us.


The order confirmation has the purpose to offer the possibility to the customer to object if his demands hare not correctly been interpreted. Without response within appropriate period our order confirmation counts as approved for both parts.



Except in the case of another written agreement, the prices are understood ex factory, net, excluding packaging.


The lawful value-added tax (VAT) is not included in the supply prices. It will be expelled separately in lawful amount on the day of invoicing on the invoice.


Packaging will not be taken back, nor will be credited.


In the case of franco deliveries, only normal transport costs are included in our prices. If there is no written agreement to the contrary, our prices do not include premiums for transport insurance or special risks, etc.; the purchase must in all cases take the full responsibility for these. If it is expressly agreed that the premiums for transport insurance and special risks, etc. are included in our prices, the current rate at the time of our offer is valid; additional expenditure arising from changes in tarif, or rates of exchange is to be borne by the customer.


In the case of orders, the execution of which takes longer than 4 months, we reserve the right to adjust the prices correspondingly where changes in the cost of materials, wages, etc. arise, as far as fixed prices have not been agreed upon.



The delivery dates given in our offers and confirmations are all understood from the date of receipt and clarification of the definite order, and from the receipt of payments due with the order, as well as the necessary import, currency and other permits. This is, however, conditional upon raw materials for the order being available on time. Delays in the clarification of technical details will result in delays in the completion of the products ordered.


All delivery dates given by us are approximate.


Cases of force majeure, war, total or partial mobilisation of the Swiss army, epidemics, strikes, fire, etc. in our own workshops or in the works of our suppliers, will result in a corresponding prolongation of our delivery dates.


The transfer of ownership shall with in line with INCO terms.


Under no circumstances does our exceeding the delivery date justify cancellation of the order.


In cases of late delivery, we cannot accept any claim for payment of compensation under any title whatever, nor of a fine for late delivery, if there is no express written agreement from us.

Conditions of Payment


If no other conditions have been laid down, payments are to be made direct to BBTH Co., Ltd within 30 days of the date of the invoice, net, without discount and, unless otherwise agreed upon, in effective US Dollars or currency specified. Payments in other than the agreed currencies will be converted according tot the day’s rate of exchange, whereby, at all events, we reserve the right to accept or refuse the payments.


The dates on which payments are due cannot be extended under any circumstances. Under reservation or our right to insist on storage costs and other expenses, interest will be charged for late payments at the rate charged by our bank for credit.


The products remain our property until receipt of the last payment. We reserve the right to enter our reservation of property in the register.


If nothing else has been stipulated by us, all customs charges, import taxes, transit and export taxes, registration, legalisation, stamp and other fees and costs of all kinds are to be met by the customer, even if the material was sold carriage-free.


All expenditure caused by increases in the existing customs charges, taxes, or fees, or by the introduction of new customs charges, taxes or fees, is to be met by the customer. The same applies to supplementary expenditure for customs, taxes and fees which arises as a result of changes in the rates of exchange, as well as to so-called surcharges, compensation premiums and export taxes.



Drawings, illustrations, descriptions and offers for products remain our property and, without written consent from us, may not be made available to third persons, nor copied, nor be used for the production of the corresponding articles; analogously the same applies to the products themselves.



All our deliveries are transported at the recipient’s own risk even when our prices are carriage-paid and/or include putting into operation.
