After acceptance, the Buyer must examine the goods without delay. Therefore he must observe the rec-ognised industry standards. In any case, the Buyer loses the right to rely on a lack of conformity of the goods if it does not give notice to the Seller, exactly specifying the nature of the lack of conformity, as soon as he has discovered it or ought to have discovered it. After arrangement with the Seller the Buyer is responsible for the securing of all proofs.

Any repairs must be affected at the place of business of the receiver agreed in the contract. If such re-ceiver’s place differs from the Buyer’s place of business, this must be disclosed to the Seller. Otherwise the latter shall not bear any thus increased costs.
The Buyer – on reasonable demand and according to the directions of the Seller – is obliged to participate in any repair works against reimbursement of his expenses.

If the Seller fails to remedy the lack of conformity according to no. 7.3 by repair or replacement, the Buy-er is entitled to a reasonable pro rata reduction of the purchase price.
