    6. 8.6If so required the Supplier shall provide a certificate of conformance to specification with each delivery and failure to supply such certificate or delivery note in accordance with Condition 8.3 or comply with the Company's policies relating to delivery in accordance with Condition 8.5 will entitle the Company, at its discretion, to reject the delivery in whole or in part.

    12. 8.12Where the Company agrees in writing to accept delivery by instalments the Contract shall be construed as a single contract in respect of each instalment. Nevertheless failure by the Supplier to deliver any one instalment shall entitle the Company at its option to treat the whole Contract as repudiated.

All costs in relation to the rejection shall be paid by the Supplier.
    15. 8.15Without prejudice to any other rights and remedies of the Company and whether or not such defect is revealed by the Company's inspection, the Supplier shall, at the option of the Company, promptly replace, repair or refund the price of any Goods found to be defective within 24 months of delivery, whether such defect arises from faulty design, materials, workmanship or otherwise.

    6. 11.6In the case of delivery of the Goods directly to a place of delivery which is not the Company's place of business the Company will only be required to pay the price of the Goods once it has received the signed Proof of Delivery in addition to the invoice from the Supplier in accordance with Condition 8.5.

    8. 11.8In the event that the Company disputes the amount of the Supplier's invoice the Company shall be entitled at the Company's absolute discretion to pay the undisputed amount and issue and provide to the Supplier a debit note in respect of the disputed amount.

    9. 11.9If the Supplier fails to advise the Company in writing that the Supplier does not accept that the Disputed Sum is not due by the Company within 30 days of the Company providing the Supplier with the debit note then the Supplier shall be deemed to have accepted that the Disputed Sum is not due by the Company and the Company shall not be obliged to pay the Disputed Sum.
