Definitions reported in these general conditions of purchase:
The Buyer is FAMAR S.R.L. - Viale dei Mareschi, 50 - 10051 Avigliana (To) - Italy. The Supplier is the Company to which the purchase order is assigned. The Supply is any type of supply of materials, goods or services that are the subject of the purchase order. The GCP are the clauses reported in this document. The special conditions are the clauses reported on the FAMAR S.R.L. purchase order. The specifications and technical specifications (to be requested from our purchasing department if not in your possession) are the documents that define the technical & operational requirements of the supply.
Art. 1 - General prescriptions. The GCP form an integral part of the purchase order and are applied as essential clauses of the same. Only the special conditions indicated in the individual purchase orders are prevalent with respect to the GCP and may constitute an exception to the same. The GCP and any special conditions may not be modified or added to unless there is a written agreement between FAMAR S.R.L. and the supplier. The GCP shall apply to all purchase orders sent by FAMAR S.R.L. to the supplier.
Art. 2 - Acceptance of the General Conditions of Purchase and Purchase Order. The supplier shall formalize the acceptance of the purchase order by returning the purchase order copy duly stamped and signed for acceptance within 5 days of receipt. If the supplier has not returned the duly signed purchase order within five (5) days of its receipt, FAMAR S.R.L. reserves the right to cancel the purchase order at any time.
Initial execution of the purchase order by the supplier constitutes complete acceptance of the purchase order, including the reference documents (GCP, technical specification, specifications, etc.). The GCP shall be deemed tacitly accepted unless otherwise communicated to FAMAR S.R.L. within 5 days of receipt of the purchase order.
Art. 3 - Complete agreement. The purchase order, GCP, special conditions and attachments represent the complete agreement between the parties and exceed any previous agreement on the object of the supply. Acceptance of the purchase order and its attachments by the supplier automatically cancels the supplier's general conditions of sale.
Art. 4 - Delivery terms. The supplier undertakes to strictly adhere to the delivery terms indicated on the purchase order, which are to be considered essential and accepted.
Art. 5 - Prohibition to transfer the purchase order. The supplier shall not be entitled to assign the purchase order to third parties without the prior written authorisation of FAMAR S.R.L. This shall be without prejudice to the assignability of the credit deriving from the purchase order to the supplier and the partial subcontracting of the same. In the case of partial subcontracting, the supplier Famar shall always remain fully responsible for the supply.
Art. 6 - Force Majeure. In the presence of an event of Force Majeure (such as, for example, earthquakes, fires, epidemics, etc.) that may compromise the agreed delivery dates, the supplier shall immediately inform FAMAR S.R.L. in writing, specifying the extent of the consequent estimated or actual delay. The supplier must in any case take all those actions aimed at reducing the delay and recovering lost time. Any new delivery date shall be agreed between FAMAR S.R.L. and the supplier in relation to the impediment of Force Majeure. Should the Force Majeure cause cause a delay in delivery exceeding 30 (thirty) days FAMAR S.R.L. reserves the right to terminate the purchase order at any time by sending a registered letter or e-mail to the supplier.
Art. 7 - Specifications. All the parts included in the purchase order must faithfully comply with the FAMAR S.R.L. mechanical machining specifications, which you will receive from us or which you will have to request from the purchase office, as well as with the specifications of the FINAL customer to whom the FAMAR S.R.L. supply is destined.
As per the specifications (Paragraph 3.3 page 5), parts with sharp edges will not be accepted unless specifically requested by our drawing: they must all be chamfered and deburred in a workmanlike manner.
If the above information is not already in your possession, you are obliged to request it from the purchasing office, otherwise we shall consider that you have obtained and are following the specifications of the final customer.

Deliveries of the materials must be accompanied by the prescribed shipping documents on which the following indications must be written: -date, -purchase order, -purchase order, -material code, -description of the product/service, -quantity, -gross and net weight of the packages, -shipping method.

The goods are always intended as delivered ex works FAMAR S.R.L. (Avigliana -TO-) unless otherwise specified in the purchase order.
If the quantities delivered are higher than the purchase order, the purchasing office will be entitled to accept or not the excess quantity. Any returned goods delivered in excess and not accepted shall be handled at the supplier's complete care and expense.
Art. 9 - Penalties for late delivery. In the presence of delays in the supply subject of the purchase order, FAMAR S.R.L. reserves the right to apply to the supplier and without prejudice to any right of termination and compensation for any damages suffered, a penalty of 1% of the value of the amount, indicated on the purchase order, of the supply not delivered within the contractually established term, for each week of delay.

The normal terms of payment of FAMAR S.R.L. include in any case the "end of month" condition. In case of material delivered in advance with respect to the terms provided for in the order, the payment terms shall start from the delivery date provided for in the order itself. The goods returned to our supplier must give rise to a credit note in favour of FAMAR S.R.L. which must be received within the month following that in which the return of the goods occurred. Otherwise we shall consider ourselves authorised to issue a debit note to be paid by the supplier.
