Section 9.7 Biosil’s right to audit: Provided that Biosil has given reasonable notice, Biosil’s representatives shall be allowed from time to time to inspect and observe work being performed by ASC and/or results of ASC audits of suppliers and sub-contractors in relation to the Products. For the avoidance of doubt any such inspection may include testing the Products. Such inspections and observation shall occur during normal working hours and during other hours that are reasonable under the circumstances. Biosil shall conduct such inspections so as to avoid any undue disruption to work in progress.

 

Section 9.8 ASC’s obligation to audit: Without prejudice to Biosil’s right to audit in terms of Section 9.7, ASC shall, in relation to such of ASC’s suppliers and sub-contractors as are relevant to the supply of the Products, perform such audits on such basis and at such frequency as Biosil reasonably notifies to ASC from time to time. ASC shall prepare such audits on the basis of ISO9000 (or any replacement standard therefore from time to time provided such replacement sets equivalent or greater standards) and shall disclose in full the results of such audits to Biosil as soon as reasonably practicable after the audits have been carried out. For the avoidance of doubt, ASC shall perform such audits at no additional cost to Biosil.

 

SECTION 10 FORCE MAJEURE

No liability shall result to either Biosil or ASC from any delay in performance or from nonperformance caused by circumstances beyond the reasonable control of the party affected, including but not limited to, acts of God, fire, flood, explosion, war, action or request of governmental authority labor trouble or shortage equipment or transportation, or any other circumstances of a similar or different nature beyond the reasonable control of the party so failing (“Event of Force Majeure”). Note, however, that the adverse financial condition of the party so failing or a failure to procure that third parties perform their obligations in relation to the Products shall not in any event amount to an Event of Force Majeure. The party suffering the Event of Force Majeure shall diligently attempt to remove such cause or causes and shall promptly notify the other party of the existence of such Event of Force Majeure and its probable duration. If an Event of Force Majeure occurs that is reasonably likely to affect ASC’s ability to timeously perform any Purchase Order, Biosil shall be entitled to cancel such Purchase Order and to obtain the affected quantities of Products from third party sources and/or terminate this Agreement. In no event, however, shall an Event of Force Majeure suspend or otherwise affect Biosil’s obligation to pay for Product which has been provided to Biosil in accordance with the terms hereof prior to the Event of Force Majeure occurring.

Date. The Price shall only be adjusted in the event of a new tax or an amendment to an existing tax in circumstances where such tax directly discriminates against ASC in its capacity as a provider of the Products but such tax shall not be deemed to be discriminatory solely on the basis that its effect on ASC is greater than its effect on other persons and a change in taxes based upon ASC’s income or property shall be deemed not to be discriminatory in any circumstances.
