If there is reason to believe that the defect can cause risk of damage, such a message must be given immediately.

NGI A/S obligation concerning the defective part is fulfilled when NGI A/S has delivered a duly repaired or exchanged part to the purchaser.
4.6 If the purchaser has given such a message as mentioned in point 4.4, and it transpires that there is no defect for which NGI A/S carries responsibility, NGI A/S has the right to remuneration for work done and the costs which the claim has caused to NGI A/S.
4.7 If possible demounting and installation necessitates intervention in other things than the delivered goods, the work and the costs hereby incurred are carried by the purchaser.

- demand a proportional discount up to a maximum 15% of the contract sum.
If the defect is essential, the purchaser can alternatively cancel the agreement in writing to NGI A/S.

4.12 NGI A/S’s liability only includes defects which appear under those in the agreement’s presupposed working conditions and under correct use of the delivered goods.
The liability does not include defects caused by circumstances occurring after taking over possession of the delivered goods. It does not for example include defects which are caused by defective maintenance on the purchaser’s side, or changes to the delivered goods made by the purchaser without NGI A/S’s written consent or repairs which the purchaser has carried out in a faulty manner. The liability does not include normal wear and tear and depreciation.
4.13 NGI A/S has no liability for defects besides those described in points 4.1 - 4.12. This applies to any loss which the defect might cause, including loss on operations, lost earnings and other financial consequence loss. This limitation of NGI A/S’s liability does not apply if NGI A/S is guilty of gross negligence.
5.0 Liability for damage caused by the delivered goods after taking possession (product liability)
5.1 The purchaser shall indemnify NGI A/S to the extent that NGI A/S has imposed liability to a third party for such damage and such loss which NGI A/S according this point’s second and third sections is not liable to the purchaser.
NGI A/S is not responsible for damage caused by the delivered goods after possession has been taken:
- on real property or movables which occurs while the delivered goods are in the purchaser’s possession.
- on products which are produced by the purchaser, or on products where these form a part, or on damage to real property or movables which these products cause due to the delivered goods.
In no case is NGI A/S responsible for operational loss, lost earnings or other financial consequence loss.
