BIO-RAD LABORATORIES, INC. PURCHASE ORDER TERMS AND CONDITIONS

1. Agreement.

Supplier shall provide the goods described in a PO (“Goods”), perform any services described in a PO (“Services”) and deliver all materials and other items resulting from the performance of the Services (“Deliverables”) in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Upon acceptance of a PO, shipment of Goods or commencement of the performance of Services, Supplier shall be bound by the provisions of this Agreement, whether Supplier acknowledges or otherwise signs this Agreement or the PO, unless Supplier objects to such terms in writing prior to shipping Goods or commencing the performance of Services. This Agreement may not be added to, modified, superseded, or otherwise altered, except by a writing signed by an authorized Buyer representative. Buyer shall not be bound by any different or additional terms or conditions (a) contained in any invoices, order acknowledgements, pre-printed forms, online agreements, or in any other documents or communications issued by Supplier, or (b) arising from prior courses of dealing, usages of trade, or verbal agreements not reduced to writing and signed by Buyer. Any such different or additional terms or conditions are hereby rejected, and shall be deemed null and void. To the extent that a PO might be treated as an acceptance of Supplier’s prior offer, such acceptance is expressly made on condition of assent by Supplier to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and Supplier’s acceptance of the PO, shipment of the Goods or commencement of the performance of Services shall constitute such assent.

2. Changes

Buyer may at any time, by written notice, make changes in the specifications, designs, drawings, samples, qualities, prices, terms, conditions, requirements or descriptions to which the Goods, Services and Deliverables are to conform. If any such change causes an increase or decrease in the cost of or the time required for the performance of any part of the work under the PO, then Buyer and Supplier shall discuss in good faith whether a written modification should be made to the PO to adjust the price or delivery schedule, or both. Any claim by Supplier for such an adjustment must be made in writing within thirty (30) days of the receipt of any such notice provided by Buyer. Nothing in this clause shall excuse Supplier from proceeding without delay to perform the PO as changed.

3. Cancellations

A PO does not constitute a firm offer and may be revoked at any time prior to acceptance. Buyer hereby reserves the right to reschedule any delivery or cancel any PO issued at any time no later than 7 days prior to shipment of the Goods or commencement of the performance of Services. Buyer shall not be subject to any charges or other fees as a result of such cancellation.

4. Shipment

All Goods shall be suitably packed, marked, and shipped in accordance with all applicable specifications (or if no specifications are provided, in accordance with best commercial practices) in a manner to secure the lowest transportation cost and to ensure safe transportation and handling. Damage to any Goods or other costs arising out of improper packing or shipment will be charged to Supplier. Supplier shall not charge Buyer for any packing, boxing, drayage, freight, insurance or storage unless otherwise expressly stated on the face of the PO. All Goods must be forwarded by the route designated by Buyer. If a route is not specified, Supplier shall ship the Goods at the lowest applicable classification and rate while ensuring the Goods conform to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Supplier will clearly identify the country of origin of all Goods.

5. Delivery

Time is of the essence. Goods shall be delivered to the destination and at the time stated in the PO. If Supplier fails to deliver the Goods in the quantities specified in the PO to the destination at the specified time, Buyer reserves the right to refuse to accept the Goods, cancel the PO, purchase substitute goods or services and charge Supplier for any resulting increase in the cost thereof. If Supplier delivers any Goods in quantities that are less than the quantities specified in the PO, Buyer may in its discretion accept or reject such undershipment, and Buyer may request that Supplier deliver the missing allotment of Goods by expedited delivery at Supplier’s expense. If Supplier delivers any Goods in quantities in excess of the quantities specified in the PO, Buyer may in its discretion either accept the entire shipment, or accept the quantities ordered and reject the overshipment and return the amount of the overshipment to Supplier at Supplier’s expense. Buyer shall pay for those quantities of Goods actually accepted by Buyer, and Buyer shall have no liability for payment for Goods delivered to Buyer which are rejected by Buyer.

6. Title and Risk of Loss

Supplier assumes all risk of loss for the Goods until title transfers to Buyer. Title to the Goods shall pass to Buyer upon Buyer’s receipt of the Goods at the destination.

7. Inspection

Buyer may inspect the Goods and any Deliverables, within a reasonable time after delivery at the destination, for conformity to the PO and applicable specifications. Payment for Goods or Services made prior to inspection and use of Goods or Deliverables for inspection purposes shall not constitute acceptance of such Goods or Deliverables. If any Goods or Deliverables do not conform to the PO and applicable specifications, Buyer may reject such Goods or Deliverables and return rejected Goods freight collect at Supplier's expense. No Goods or Deliverables returned as defective and/or damaged shall be replaced unless authorized in writing by Buyer. In the event defective and/or damaged Goods or Deliverables are not to be replaced, then Supplier shall fully refund to Buyer all prepaid amounts for such Goods or Deliverables. Buyer’s acceptance of the Goods or Deliverables shall not limit Supplier’s warranty or other obligations under this Agreement.

8. Prices and Payment

If no price for the Goods or the Services is specified on the face of the PO, the Goods and performance of the Services shall be billed at the price last quoted or paid, or at the prevailing market price, whichever is lower. Except to the extent otherwise expressly stated on the face of the PO, undisputed invoices will be paid net sixty (60) days from date of Buyer’s accepted receipt of invoices or Goods or Deliverables, whichever is later, with original Bill of Lading of Express receipts attached. Buyer may set-off any amounts Supplier owes Buyer against any amounts Buyer owes to Supplier or any of its affiliated companies.

9. Taxes

a. If Business Address of Supplier Entity is in the United States: Supplier may charge and collect from Buyer all applicable federal, state or local excise, sales, use, value added taxes, goods and services taxes and similar transfer taxes on the transactions that Supplier is legally obligated to charge and collect (“Taxes”), provided that such Taxes are stated on the original invoice that Supplier provides to Buyer and Supplier’s invoices state such Taxes separately and meet the appropriate tax requirements for a valid tax invoice. Buyer may provide Supplier an exemption certificate acceptable to the relevant taxing authority, in which case, Supplier shall not collect the Taxes covered by such certificate. Supplier will be responsible for all other taxes (including taxes on Supplier’s net income) or fees (including interest and penalties not due to Buyer’s fault) arising from the transactions and the documentation of transactions under this Agreement. Buyer shall maintain the right to deduct or withhold any taxes that Buyer determines it is obligated to withhold from any amounts payable to Supplier under this Agreement, and payment to Supplier as reduced by such deductions or withholdings will constitute full payment and settlement to Supplier of such amounts. Throughout the term of this Agreement, Supplier will provide Buyer with any forms, documents, or certifications as may be required for Buyer to satisfy any information reporting, to recover any of the Taxes to extent Buyer is permitted to do so from a relevant tax authority, or to undertake Buyer’s withholding Tax obligations with respect to any payments under this Agreement.

b. If Business Address of Supplier Entity is Not in the United States: Supplier may charge and collect from Buyer all applicable value added taxes, goods and services taxes and similar taxes on turnover, transfer taxes, excise duties and any other import duties and/or applicable levies ("Taxes") on the transaction that Supplier is legally obligated to charge and collect, provided that such Taxes are stated on the original invoice that Supplier provides to Buyer in the format and manner required by Buyer that enables Buyer to fully recover such costs where recovery is permitted by applicable governing regulations. For the sake of clarity, non-transfer taxes, such as taxes on net income, are not subject to payment by Buyer. Buyer may provide Supplier with an exemption certificate or any other document or information (such as a valid VAT number) acceptable to the relevant taxing authority to justify an exemption, in which case Supplier shall not collect the Taxes covered by such exemption. Buyer shall maintain the right to deduct or withhold any taxes that Buyer is legally obligated to withhold from any amounts payable to Supplier under this Agreement, and payment to Supplier as reduced by such deductions or withholdings will constitute full payment and settlement to Supplier of such amounts. Supplier and Buyer will exercise their best efforts to reduce such withholdings or deductions as much as possible under the provisions of any relevant tax treaty.

10. Records and Audit

Supplier shall maintain records related to any amounts invoiced to Buyer under this Agreement for five (5) years after receipt of Buyer’s final payment hereunder or that time period required by law, whichever is longer. Buyer shall have the right to inspect and audit Supplier’s records, facilities and operations to verify any invoiced amounts and to determine compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If any overcharges are discovered during an audit, Supplier shall pay to Buyer the amount of the overcharge plus interest (at the rate of 12% per annum or the maximum amount allowed by law, whichever is less).

11. Warranty

If Buyer identifies a failure of the Goods to conform to any warranty during the warranty period, Buyer may notify Supplier of such failure and return the nonconforming Goods to Supplier, at Supplier’s expense. Within five (5) business days of receipt of the returned Goods, Supplier shall, at Buyer’s option, either repair or replace such Goods so that the Goods conform to all warranties, or credit Buyer’s account. Repaired or replaced Goods shall be warranted for the remainder of the warranty period or six (6) months, whichever is longer.
