- SPECIFICATION ALTERATIONS
5.1 MSDAH reserves the right to alter the specification of any Product without prior reference to the Purchaser provided that the Product complies with the written description of the Product.
6.1 When it is necessary for the Purchaser to do any act to enable MSDAH to despatch the Products, such act must be performed in good time to enable MSDAH to effect despatch on the agreed delivery date (or, if no such date is agreed, within seven (7) days of acceptance of the order). In the event of the Purchaser’s failure to comply with this clause 6.1, MSDAH may at its option terminate the Contract in whole or in part by giving written notice thereof to the Purchaser.
6.2 All delivery dates are estimates only and MSDAH shall not be liable in damages for any delay in delivery.

Where no deposit is charged at the time of delivery and if the containers are not returned to MSDAH within a period of six (6) months, in good order and condition, then the Purchaser will reimburse MSDAH the replacement cost of such containers.
7.1 Without prejudice to any other rights or remedies MSDAH may have under the Contract and subject to clause 7.2, if following acceptance of the Purchaser’s order, MSDAH fails to deliver the Products in accordance with these Conditions, its liability shall be limited to the costs and expenses incurred by the Purchaser in obtaining replacement goods of similar description and quality in the cheapest market available, less the price of the Products. MSDAH shall have no liability for any failure to deliver the Products to the extent that such failure is caused by the Purchaser’s failure to provide MSDAH with adequate delivery instructions.
7.2 MSDAH’s obligation to supply Products under the Contract shall, at all times, be subject to the condition that MSDAH is able to obtain, or otherwise to produce for itself, a sufficient supply of the Product to sell to the Purchaser and for MSDAH’s other uses, obligations and commitments. Nothing in the Contract shall entitle the Purchaser to any priority of supply in relation to the Product as against MSDAH or any other clients or customers. In the event that the Products are in short supply, MSDAH shall notify the Purchaser, and make reasonable endeavours to allocate to the Purchaser a share of such Products as are available to MSDAH, as reasonably determined by MSDAH in its sole discretion, and the Purchaser hereby agrees that such allocation of Product will be the sole remedy available to the Purchaser in the event of a shortage.

Any such notice must specify the particular defect and the Purchaser must provide MSDAH reasonable opportunity to inspect the Products in question upon request.
