up to 3 percent is permissible.

b. A ton shall be understood to be 2,000 pounds,

unless otherwise specified.

c. If any portion of the goods covered by a contract

are unshipped or undelivered within the time speci-

fied in a contract, then that portion is subject to

cancellation by the buyer and/or the buyer has the

right to hold the seller responsible for substanti-

ated damages.

If, because of embargo and/or other conditions

of force majeure, a delivery or shipment cannot

be made by the time specified, the contract shall

remain valid and shall be completed promptly upon

lifting of the embargo and/or conditions of force

majeure and the terms of said contract shall not be

changed.

d. If for any portion of a contract the buyer fails in a

timely manner to open a Letter of Credit and/or

fails to provide proper conveyance and/or ship-

ping instructions as specified in the contract, then

that portion is subject to cancellation by the seller

and/or the seller has the right to hold the buyer

responsible for substantiated damages.

If, because of embargo and/or other conditions

of force majeure, a delivery or shipment cannot

be made by the time specified, the contract shall

e. If a significant weight or quality difference is

apparent, the seller should be notified promptly

and, if requested, another weight or quality

determination should be taken. Seller and/or

buyer should be given the opportunity to appoint

verify weights and/or quality.

For purposes of this section, the meaning of the

word “significant” shall be determined by agree-

ment between buyer and seller, depending on the

commodities and their values.

f. If it is mutually determined that goods delivered

do not conform to the description specified in the

contract, then the shipment is subject to rejection

or downgrade.

Disposition of, replacement of, and/or financial

adjustment for rejected material shall be subject-

ed to mutual agreement between buyer and seller.

ed portion promptly upon request, if government

regulations permit.
