Terms of purchases


The supplier has an obligation of results, especially as far as quality, durability, performance, safety of people and goods and prevention of injuries are concerned. He commits itself to advise KAYME and to correct defects or non-conformances of any kind at its own expenses within the shortest possible time.


The delivered goods must be in accordance with the order and any agreed product specification in terms of quality, quantity and description. Unless otherwise specified, the goods must also conform to applicable standards and laws. Orders shall not be executed partially or totally by any third party unless expressly agreed upon with KAYME.

Our orders are firm; we however reserve the right to cancel or modify them totally or partially whenever the acknowledgement of order differs from the terms indicated in our orders.


In addition to the contractual guarantees, suppliers are bound by the applicable legal guarantees including those concerning hidden defects


The prices stated in our purchase orders are those agreed upon with the supplier. Invoices shall expressly indicate the origin, place of delivery, purchase order number as well as reference and description of the products. Any nonconforming invoice will be rejected and sent back to the supplier.

Three copies of the invoice shall be sent to us within the month following the delivery. Payments take place as agreed between KAYME and the supplier. Due date is running from the date of delivery. Whenever products are delivered before the requested date of delivery, payment will be based on the requested date of delivery.


Any order shall be formally acknowledged in writing, and indicate reference, description, price, ordered quantity and date of shipment of the products. The requested due date stated in our orders is the actual date of shipment from supplier's premises.
