These general conditions governing supply contracts (“General Conditions”) apply to all purchases made by OMET Machinery S.r.l., with registered office in Via Mons. Polvara 10, Lecco (hereinafter referred to as “OMET Machinery”), in fulfilment of a purchase order for products of various types (“goods”), sent by OMET Machinery itself by telephone, verbally, by fax, by email or via the internet (“purchase order”) to the Supplier shown on the purchase order, except where the conditions are amended or supplemented or their applicability is excluded by express written agreement with OMET Machinery.

These General Conditions expressly exclude the applicability of any general or specific conditions of the Supplier. Such conditions of the Supplier will, in any event, not be binding for OMET Machinery, not even if, upon receipt, the latter does not expressly confirm refusal of them. In the event of amendments to these General Conditions, OMET Machinery will send a copy of the amendments to the Supplier with the related purchase order and the new terms and conditions will be immediately applicable on receipt of the purchase order to which they are appended.

These General Conditions are published on the website of Omet, where they can be fully and properly consulted, in accordance with Article 1341, paragraph 1 of the Italian Civil Code, without prejudice to the need for specific approval of those conditions listed at the bottom of this document, which are subject to the provisions of Article 1341, paragraph 2 of the Italian Civil Code.



1.1 The order is understood to be finalised when OMET Machinery SRL – Via Mons. Polvara 10 – Lecco (hereinafter called “OMET Machinery”) receives from the contracting party (hereinafter called the “Supplier”) written acceptance of all the conditions contained in it.

1.2 Acceptance of this order must reach OMET Machinery within 10 days of the supplier receiving it. If said 10-day period elapses without written confirmation being received, the order and all of its conditions are considered tacitly accepted. However, if no written acceptance is received, OMET Machinery reserves the right to withdraw from the contract subject to written notification of this to be sent to the Supplier, provided the latter has not, in any way, started executing the service.



2.1 The supply or processing of the items indicated in the order are subject to the following conditions:

If, during processing, imperfections become evident that are attributable to incorrect technical documents, to deformed equipment or materials supplied by OMET Machinery, the supplier must immediately contact OMET Machinery and come to an agreement concerning the solutions to the issue.

2.2 Guarantee
The Supplier guarantees the conformity of the goods supplied or processed to what was expressly ordered and agreed, as well as the usability of said goods according to the purpose for which they are intended. Therefore, amongst other things, the guarantee applies to defects and faults in the goods, lack of the qualities promised, that is to say, essential for the use of the goods for which they are intended and hidden defects or delivery of aliud pro alio (delivery of goods very different from what was agreed upon in the contract). It shall be understood that said guarantee also extends to defects and faults, lack of promised and essential qualities, hidden defects deriving from errors in design or use of material by the Supplier. Said guarantee lasts for twelve months from the date of delivery of the goods by the Supplier to the OMET works in Lecco, unless otherwise agreed in the purchase order.

2.3 Checks and testing
Acceptance testing of the goods supplied or processed relating to the order is carried out by OMET Machinery at its Lecco Plants by its personnel unless otherwise agreed by the parties. Therefore, simple delivery of the goods to the OMET Machinery works does not mean that the goods have been accepted. OMET Machinery may report faults, defects, lack of promised or essential qualities of the goods which are the subject of the order within 12 months after receiving said goods at its plants: even if the goods have already been used and the related invoices already paid. In the case of delivery aliud pro alio, the relevant technical and legal regulations will apply. The testing referred to above must be carried out in conformity with standards for the goods sector of the goods subject to testing). If, during testing, full or partial supplies are discovered containing reject pieces, non-conforming pieces or otherwise unsuitable pieces for the contractually intended use, in addition to the remedies and actions permitted by Law (including termination of the contract and requesting compensation for damage), OMET Machinery will also have the possibility to:

2.4 Delivery of raw materials or semi-finished goods to the Supplier
If OMET Machinery delivers to the Supplier the raw materials or the semi-finished goods that will be processed by the latter, the following conditions and agreements shall apply:

2.5 Design changes
OMET Machinery reserves the right, due to requirements that emerge after entering into the contract, to:

Upon receiving from OMET Machinery the notification of change or cancellation referred to, the Supplier must suspend the supply or processing relating to the order and shall notify OMET Machinery, within one week of receiving the change or cancellation, of the production or processing status and the cost of the goods purchased up to that time. At this juncture OMET Machinery reserves the right, at its discretion, to:

2.6 Transfer of risk
The products of processing shall always be understood to be delivered free to the OMET Machinery warehouses in Lecco, unless otherwise agreed at the contractual stage. The transfer of risk for what is ordered takes place only upon delivery to the OMET Machinery works.



3.1 The delivery dates agreed shall be understood to be final and essential. Therefore, in addition to delays, no deliveries must be made earlier than agreed.

3.2 In the case of processing to be carried out using material under subcontract and delivered by OMET Machinery, the latter shall:



4.1 If the contractual delivery deadlines are not met, OMET Machinery reserves the right to charge the Supplier a penalty equal to 2% of the total value of the order for each week of delay with respect to the contractual deadline, without prejudice to the right to compensation for greater damage suffered.

4.2 If the delay exceeds four business weeks, again without prejudice to the right to compensation for greater damage, OMET Machinery may, at its discretion:

4.3 OMET Machinery’s receipt of goods and the Supplier’s delivery of the same are subject to the absence of causes beyond their will, such as, by way of example and without limitation, natural calamities, fire, floods, earthquakes and other natural disasters, general strikes, hence, not caused by the conduct of either party, lock-outs, intervention by civil or military authorities (collectively, “Force Majeure”).



5.1 The drawings, specifications and any other technical documents, as well as models, samples and specific equipment made available to the Supplier remain the property of OMET Machinery and may only be used to fulfil the related order. Once the contractual obligation has been fulfilled, that is to say, when the contract has been cancelled for any reason, the Supplier must immediately return the goods described above to OMET Machinery.

5.2 In any case, while holding said material, the Supplier must take the necessary steps to perfectly preserve the models, samples and specific equipment and must also carry out routine maintenance at its own expense. It must also cover said items by stipulating a suitable insurance policy against the risk of fire and theft and for third party liability.

5.3 Any extraordinary repairs or substitutions required shall be paid for by OMET Machinery if they cannot be traced back to or attributed to Supplier negligence, inexperience, error, carelessness or to damage caused by the latter. The Supplier must report extraordinary maintenance work and any substitutions made. OMET Machinery reserves the right to have any extraordinary repairs carried out by its own personnel or by the Supplier or by third parties.

5.4 Ban on use, copying, transmission, disclosure for the benefit of third parties
The drawings and the other technical documents received by the Supplier must not be used, copied, transmitted or disclosed for the benefit of the Supplier itself or third parties without permission from OMET Machinery. Breach of the obligations described above will give OMET Machinery the right to take all action and make use of the rights to which it is legally entitled.

5.5 Payment of a contribution to expenses by OMET Machinery
If OMET Machinery pays the supplier a contribution to expenses for the construction of specific equipment which the Supplier remains the sole owner of, the following will occur:

The obligations referred to in points a) and b) will be in force until the contractual relationship between the Supplier and OMET Machinery, whose execution requires the use of the equipment referred to, remains in existence. Should the said contractual relationship cease to exist, OMET Machinery may request that the equipment be returned or authorise its destruction at its own expense by the Supplier. Breach of the obligations described above will give OMET Machinery the right to take all action and make use of the rights to which it is legally entitled.



6.1 The Supplier undertakes to keep the goods owned by OMET Machinery and received on consignment, under subcontract or for processing related to or part of the supply to the standard of good housekeeping; the Supplier will thus be considered liable for any loss or damage to the goods during the period of their custody on its premises, with the exception of deterioration due to non-abnormal or technically incorrect use.

6.2 The Supplier undertakes to use said equipment and any other property supplied by to it OMET Machinery only within the contractual relationship with OMET Machinery itself.
The Supplier shall be required to return the equipment and any other property delivered to it by OMET Machinery as soon as OMET Machinery asks for it.

6.3 For the use of said property, the Supplier shall strictly comply with the workplace safety requirements referred to in Legislative Decree no. 81/08 with which all equipment and property supplied by
OMET Machinery complies.



The Supplier undertakes to take out and maintain for the duration of its collaboration with OMET Machinery and for five subsequent years, third party product insurance cover with a recall extension, whose terms must be notified to OMET Machinery and supported by a policy certificate.

The absence of insurance cover or the non-validity of the same may be cause for resolution of the order in accordance with Article 1456 of the Italian Civil Code.



8.1 Confidentiality
The Supplier undertakes to process any information, data, finding, be it patented or patentable, know-how and any news in general that is technical, financial, commercial or administrative in nature, as well as any drawings, documents, magnetic support or sample material or product related to the goods that are the subject of the supplies to OMET Machinery (hereinafter “confidential information”) in the strictest confidentiality and as if it were its own private and confidential information and to store said information in the appropriate manner. Specifically, any information concerning the activities of OMET Machinery that is not in the public domain and of which the Supplier gains knowledge while executing the agreement must be processed as confidential information belonging to OMET Machinery and must not be disclosed, unless the disclosure is required by law or by a court order or by another competent authority. The confidentiality obligations shall remain in force indefinitely. The parties undertake not to directly or indirectly disclose, nor to notify third parties by any means of the content, contractual terms and conditions, the activities carried out by the parties to execute the agreement. The parties shall also ensure that said obligations are observed by all persons for which they are responsible, including employees, consultants, agents, appointees, etc.
