The S 2012 General Conditions are an updated version of the S 2000 conditions (originally the S 92 conditions). They are primarily intended for use in international contracts for delivery of engineering industry products in general. They can also be used for national contracts, but they are not suitable for use in consumer contracts.
If these Orgalime's conditions for Supply have been drawn up on the same basic principles as the UN ECE 188, there are substantial differences both as regards structure and content. The most obvious difference is that Orgalime S 2012 are complete and do not need a separate agreement on basic terms, such as the length of the defects liability period and the extent of the seller's liability for late delivery.
There is a special annex which should be used in contracts when German law applies.
The guide on the use of Orgalime S 2012 General Conditions provides detailed comments and explanations of the provisions of these conditions and has been drafted by a number of the writers of Orgalime's General Conditions.
Please also consult whether the supplementary conditions for the supervision of installation of mechanical, electrical and electronic products for equipment - S 2012 S could be useful for your purposes.
Other language versions will be available soon.
