8. Acceptance and complaint deadlines
8.1 The acceptance of deliveries by us
takes place only at the contractual place
of performance. This applies also when it
has been agreed that we will collect the
8.2 The contractual partner has to transfer
the contractual object of delivery to our
ownership free of the rights of third parties
and of his own reservations.
8.3 If we have complaints about deviations
of the delivery from our order or defects,
the time limit for us to issue such complaints
is 10 working days. If our complaint is
made in writing, it will comply with the
deadline if it is sent within the time limit.
8.4 For obvious deviations or defects,
the time limit for complaints expires the
day after we have accepted the delivery.
If the delivery is made to a construction
site, we have first just to check for deviations
in type and quantity, for transport damage
or damage to packing and to complain about
these problems. If the goods are intended
for further processing, installation or
similar, and defects will only become evident
thereby or after taking into service, and
in the case of hidden material defects,
the complaint period starts only when the
defect is discovered.
8.5 We are not obliged to carry out investigations
to determine what is impairing the substance
or function of goods supplied, nor to take
samples. In the same way, we are not obliged
to carry out repeat testing in so far as
the contractual partner has to carry out
quality and production controls and to present
test certificates detailing the results.
