Formation and Incorporation of Contract Works
2.1 Subject to any variation under condition 2.4, the Contract will be on the terms and conditions set out herein to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions (including any terms or conditions which the Purchaser or Sub-Contractor purports to apply under any purchase order, confirmation of order or similar document).
2.2 Each order for Services by the Purchaser shall be deemed to be an offer by the Purchaser to purchase the Services from the Supplier subject to these terms and conditions.
2.3 Each offer of Services by Sub-Contractors shall be deemed to be an offer by the Sub-Contractor to supply Services or Goods subject to these terms and conditions.
2.4 No terms or conditions endorsed upon, delivered with or contained in the Purchaser’s purchase order, confirmation of order or similar document will form part of the Contract simply as a result of a reference to such document being referred to in the Contract.
2.5 Any variation to these terms and conditions and any representations (other than those set out in these terms and conditions) about the Services shall have no effect unless expressly agreed in writing and signed by a director or duly authorised representative of the Supplier.
2.6 Entry onto a Site, delivery or attempted delivery of Goods or Services to a site by the Supplier, based upon any correspondence to supply shall be and be deemed to be conclusive evidence of the Purchaser’s acceptance of these terms and conditions.
2.7 Any quotation is given on the basis that no Contract in respect thereof will come into existence until the Supplier despatches an acknowledgment of order to the Purchaser. Any quotation is valid for a period of 30 days only from its date provided the Supplier has not previously withdrawn it.
2.8 The Contract prepared by Soilutions is based on the information made available by the Purchaser about the nature and composition of the material and liquid, as well as about the nature and degree of its contamination. The information supplied by the Purchaser is nonetheless in no way whatsoever binding on Soilutions and in consequence has only an informative value for the preparation of the initial offer by Soilutions Ltd.
2.9 It is only possible to determine the ultimate price of the Contract and the processing of the contaminated material or liquids on the basis of the results of the examination and analysis of the submitted material or liquids carried out on the instructions of Soilutions Ltd as specified below. The offer made by Soilutions Ltd is consequently only provisional in nature. Acceptance or signing by the Purchaser is not binding on Soilutions Ltd and a binding agreement comes only into being after the acceptance of the nature of material for treatment by Soilutions Ltd or unless specific written agreements have been made to the contrary.
2.10 Soilutions Ltd can only be held to have agreed the nature of material or liquid for treatment, submitted by the Purchaser, when the material is after inspection that is after the testing and analysis of the composition of the degree of contamination, found to be in compliance, without prejudice to that informed to the Supplier by the Purchaser. Such Contract agreement will be withheld for any material whereof the composition and contamination is found by Soilutions Ltd to be so divergent from the information supplied by the Purchaser that it must be classed in a category other than that indicated by supplying party.
2.11 Soilutions Ltd will proceed to the inspection and sampling of the material after the award of Contract to confirm its matrix, contamination levels and nature. Purchasers who wish to be present during the inspection and sampling must inform Soilutions Ltd of this in advance and in writing. The inspection and analysis of the samples will be carried out by a laboratory appointed to this end by Soilutions Ltd.
2.12 As long as the results of the inspection and analysis are unknown Soilutions Ltd accepts no liability whatsoever in respect of the material, nor does it accept any liability in respect of the quality, composition, degree of contamination, or volume of the consignment, or in respect of any asserted change in these parameters. The Purchaser waives all possible claims on Soilutions Ltd whatsoever in this respect.
2.13 If after inspection and analysis it should appear that a consignment of soil does not conform to that regarding composition and degree of pollution indicated by the Purchaser, the Contract may not be accepted by Soilutions Ltd and shall be accepted only subject to the conditions further specified by Soilutions Ltd, without in any way prejudicing the provisions of this article. Should this case arise the other party will be informed in writing of the reason for withholding Contract acceptance.
2.14 Whatever the case Soilutions reserves the right to refuse to accept the Contract terms should it appear that the specifications given by the Purchaser diverge to such an extent that the proposed treatment cannot be carried out. Should the case arise and should the Purchaser so request and agree to pay for the same, Soilutions Ltd will give an opinion about an alternative treatment for the material.
2.15 Should Purchaser have any objections to the inspection and the analysis carried out by Soilutions Ltd, these must be communicated by written registered letter within a period of 7 days of the notice of the approval or rejection of the Contract terms. After the expiry of this period the results of the inspection and analysis carried out by Soilutions Ltd will be held to have been accepted by Purchaser without dispute.
2.16 Soilutions Ltd retains at all times the right to amend its treatment conditions should the authorities introduce changes in required obligations, standards and permits, and environmental taxes as well as in the event of the acquisition of new insights in the safe and adequate handling of contaminated materials.
2.17 Any loss that might ensue by reason of concentrations of contamination, agreed volume, physical composition or unanticipated contamination or objects in the material, that vary from that originally supplied by the Purchaser is for the account of the Purchaser.
2.18 Any dates specified by the Supplier for provision of the Services are approximate only and may not be made of the essence by notice. If no dates are so specified, provision of the Services will be within a reasonable time.
2.19 Subject to the other provisions of these terms and conditions, the Supplier will not be liable for any loss (including loss of profit), costs, damages, charges or expenses caused directly or indirectly by any delay in the provision of the Services (even if caused by the Supplier’s negligence).
2.20 The Purchaser warrants that it will have the true and unencumbered right to authorise and allow the Supplier to provide the Services in respect of the Contract.
Price and Payment
3.1 The price of the Goods or Services and the terms of payment, shall be as stated in the Tender or Purchase Order documents, with any agreed adjustments being allowed for discounts or agreed changes in scope of the goods and/or works being supplied by the Supplier and shall be the total compensation payable to the Supplier under the Contract.
3.2 The price for the Services is exclusive of any Value Added Tax, Landfill Tax, or any other applicable tax which the Purchaser shall pay in addition when it is due to pay for the Services unless otherwise stated in the Supplier’s quotation. In the event of any tax, duty or levy being imposed on, or any existing tax, duty or levy being increased, in respect of the management of the Contract (or any category thereof) then the Purchaser shall bear such tax, duty or levy (or increase thereof) in its entirety.
3.3 The Supplier reserves the right to with-hold delivery of the Goods or Services, either in part or in total if the purchaser has not paid the supplier due compensation in accordance with the terms of payment in the tender document or as otherwise agreed.

3.6 No payment shall be deemed to have been received until the Supplier has received cleared funds.
3.7 All payments payable to the Supplier under the Contract shall become due immediately upon termination of the Contract despite any other provision.
3.8 The Purchaser shall make all payments due under the Contract without any deduction whether by way of set-off, counterclaim or otherwise unless the Purchaser has a valid Court order requiring an amount equal to such deduction to be paid by the Supplier to the Purchaser.
3.9 If the Purchaser fails to make any payment under the Contract on the due date then (without prejudice to its other rights and remedies) the Supplier may charge the Purchaser interest (both before and after judgment) on the amount unpaid at the annual rate of 4% above Bank of Scotland’s base rate from time to time from the due date until payment is made in full. A part of a month shall be treated as being a full month for the purpose of calculating interest.
3.10 Time for payment shall be of the essence.
4.1 The Supplier undertakes that any delivery of Goods or Services at any Site by the Supplier will be carried out in accordance with the provisions of the Supplier’s waste management or mobile treatment licence in force.

6.2 The Sub-Contractor shall provide appropriate information as requested by the Supplier to enable the safe delivery of their Goods or Services in accordance with the latest Health and Safety legislation.
7.1 The Supplier shall not be liable to the Purchaser in any manner nor be deemed to be in breach of the Contract because of any delay in performing or any failure to perform any of the Supplier’s obligations under this Contract if the delay or failure was due to any cause beyond the Supplier’s reasonable control.
