General conditions for the supply of goods

1 Supply of Goods
(a) The Supplier must supply the Goods to Beyond Blue in accordance with the Specification and otherwise in accordance with these Conditions.
(b) The Supplier must deliver the Goods to the Delivery Address by the date (and where applicable, time) specified in the Purchase Order. Delivery will not be taken to have occurred until delivery is acknowledged in writing by Beyond Blue.
(c) If delivery of the Goods (or any part thereof) is likely to be delayed, the Supplier shall immediately give written notice to Beyond Blue specifying all causes of such delay and a probable date for delivery. If Beyond Blue is of the opinion that the delay is likely to substantially affect any obligations of Beyond Blue to any third party, Beyond Blue may, in its absolute discretion, cancel any part of any Purchase Order, without liability and without prejudice to any rights it has against the Supplier.

2 Price
The Price is fixed and includes all packaging, transport, insurance, loading, unloading, storage and any other costs incurred by the Supplier.


Unless otherwise expressly stated, the Price and any other sums payable or consideration to be provided under or in accordance with the Purchase Order or these Conditions are exclusive of GST (as defined under the GST Act).

4 Acceptance or rejection of Goods

(a) If the Goods conform with the Specification, Beyond Blue will promptly accept the Goods in writing. If the Goods do not conform, Beyond Blue may reject the Goods within 10 business days of delivery by written notice giving reasons. If Beyond Blue does not accept or reject the Goods within 10 business days of delivery, delivery will be deemed to have then occurred.
(b) The Supplier must at its own cost collect and remove any Goods that have been rejected as soon as practicable or Beyond Blue may return the Goods to the Supplier at the Supplier’s expense.

5 Cancellation

(a) Beyond Blue may cancel the Purchase Order at any time by giving written notice to the Supplier who must, on receipt, immediately cease supplying the Goods and take appropriate action to mitigate any loss or prevent further costs being incurred with respect to the supply of Goods.
(b) Beyond Blue will pay all reasonable amounts due in accordance with clause 2 for Goods supplied up until the date of cancellation (but not any loss of prospective profits).

6 Invoicing and payment

(a) The Supplier must submit to Beyond Blue a tax invoice in respect of the Goods once they are delivered (or at any time agreed in the Purchase Order). A tax invoice submitted for payment must contain the information necessary to be a tax invoice for the purposes of the GST Act, together with such other information as Beyond Blue may reasonably require. Invoices must be sent to the address specified in the Purchase Order.
(b) Beyond Blue will pay the invoiced amount within 30 days of receipt of a compliant invoice. If Beyond Blue disputes the invoiced amount, it will pay the undisputed amount (if any) and notify the Supplier of the dispute. The parties will endeavour to resolve any such dispute as expediently as possible.
(c) No interest will be payable by Beyond Blue in respect of any invoice rendered which remains due and unpaid.
(d) Payment of an invoice does not, in itself, constitute acceptance of the Goods in accordance with the Agreement.

7 Title and risk

Title in the Goods will pass to Beyond Blue upon payment for the Goods. Risk in the Goods will pass to Beyond Blue when the Goods are delivered to the Delivery Address.

8 Intellectual Property Rights

The Supplier grants to Beyond Blue a non-exclusive, perpetual, royalty-free licence to use any Intellectual Property Rights in relation to any Goods supplied to the extent necessary to allow Beyond Blue the full use and enjoyment of those Goods and the Supplier must, upon request by Beyond Blue, do all things as may be necessary (including executing any documents) to give full effect to such rights.

9 Warranties

The Supplier warrants to Beyond Blue that:
(a) it has complete ownership of the Goods free of any liens, charges and encumbrances and will provide the Goods on that basis. Accordingly, Beyond Blue is entitled to clear, complete and quiet possession of the Goods;
(b) it is entitled to use and deal with any Intellectual Property Rights which may be used by it in connection with the Goods; and
(c) the Goods:
(i) are new and fit for the purpose stated in the Specification (or, if no purpose is stated, the purpose for which the Goods would ordinarily be used);
(ii) are free from defects (including defects in installation);
(iii) are of merchantable quality and comply with all Laws;
(iv) comply with all applicable Australian standards; and
(v) conform in all respects with the Specification and will continue to comply with the Specification for 24 months from the date of delivery or
12 months from the date of installation or initial use of the Goods, whichever is the sooner (Warranty Period). If, during the Warranty Period, Beyond Blue finds any of the Goods to be defective, it will, at its option:
(A) return the defective Goods to the Supplier;
(B) make good any defective Goods and the Supplier agrees to reimburse Beyond Blue for any expenses; or
(C) require the Supplier to repair or replace the defective Goods returned, free of charge (and the Warranty Period will be renewed accordingly).

10 Liability

The Supplier indemnifies Beyond Blue and each of its employees and agents against any loss, damage, claim, action or expense (including legal expense) which any of them suffers as a direct result of any failure by the Supplier to supply the Goods in accordance with these Conditions or any other breach of the Agreement.

11 Confidentiality and privacy

The Supplier and its employees, agents, directors, partners, shareholders and consultants must not disclose or otherwise make available any Confidential Information to any other person.

(b) The Supplier acknowledges that if it (or any of its employees, agents and sub-contractors) enters Beyond Blue’s premises, it does so at the Supplier’s own risk.

13 Sub-contracting

(a) The Supplier must not sub-contract to any third person any of its obligations in relation to the supply of the Goods without the prior written consent of Beyond Blue (which may be given or withheld in its absolute discretion).
(b) The Supplier will not, as a result of any sub-contracting arrangement, be relieved from the performance of any obligation under the Agreement and will be liable for all acts and omissions of a sub-contractor as though they were the actions of the Supplier itself.

14 Variation

The nature of the Goods, any dates for delivery, the Price or any other detail of the Purchase Order may only be varied in writing signed by the Supplier and Beyond Blue.

15 General

(a) The Supplier must, in supplying the Goods, comply with all Laws.
