- The term of delivery, duration of the repair work, or the performance period with respect to the services or work to be performed shall be an estimate only and shall in no event be construed as a strict deadline. Delivery shall be effected at the agreed location and on the agreed conditions.
- If the term of delivery is exceeded, the purchaser shall, in principle, not be entitled to any penalty and/or damages or termination of the agreement.

In the event of performance of services or work, the purchaser shall, on pain of forfeiture of damages, costs, and interest, arrange all such required rooms and facilities as the seller may deem necessary for or conducive to the performance of the agreement, which shall meet all statutory and other requirements to be set in that respect.

The notice referred to in the foregoing sentence shall in any event include (1) the obligations that the seller will be unable to perform due to the situation of force majeure; and (2) the period of the situation of force majeure as expected by the seller.
- If the situation of force majeure has continued for a period exceeding ninety days, the seller shall be entitled to terminate the agreement by dissolution with immediate effect, without any judicial intervention being required. In such event the purchaser shall not be entitled to any damages.
- In no event shall the purchaser be entitled to dissolve the agreement, unless (1) the purchaser can demonstrate that earlier performance is essential to its business operations; and (2) moreover, that the situation of force majeure is not likely still to end in the foreseeable future (30 days). In such event dissolution shall be effected in writing within five (5) days of expiry of the period referred to in paragraph 5 and the purchaser shall compensate the seller’s damage as a result of dissolution.
- For the duration of the situation of force majeure, the seller shall take all such reasonable measures as may be necessary to end the situation of force majeure, or to limit the adverse effects thereof for the purchaser to the extent possible. The seller shall notify the purchaser of the measures referred to in the foregoing sentence.
- As soon as the situation of force majeure has ended, the seller shall notify the purchaser, stating in any event the time at which the seller shall resume delivery.
