Terms of Trade

Terms of Trade
Dawborn Steels Trading Pty Ltd (Dawborn Steels) Terms of
Trade (Terms) Version: 06/05/24
The Customer has read, understood and agrees to these Terms. The parties agree, these Terms apply to all
transactions between Dawborn Steels and the Customer and these Terms, together with any terms set out in
any Sales Contract, form the agreement between the parties (Agreement) under which Dawborn Steels
agrees to provide and the Customer agrees to accept and pay for the Goods. To the extent of any
inconsistency, the terms of the Sales Contract prevails over these Terms.
To the extent that the context permits, capitalised terms not defined in these Terms have the same meaning
as specified in the Sales Contract as appropriate. Dawborn Steels and the Customer agree:

Orders and Acceptance of Orders
1. On receipt of a request to supply Goods from the Customer, Dawborn Steels will provide a Quote in writing
which may be in the form of a Sales Contract to the Customer.
2. Unless the Customer confirms within one Business Day of the Quote being received it wishes to proceed
with the purchase of the Goods and enters into a Sales Contract within 24 hours of acceptance of receipt of
the Quote, Dawborn Steels reserves the right to review and update the Pricing in the Quote and/or Sales
Contract as appropriate.
3. To accept or enter into a Sales Contract, it must be accepted or signed by an authorised representative of
the Customer. The Customer represents, acknowledges and agrees it is the Customer’s responsibility to
ensure that only its authorised representatives place and accept orders for Goods with Dawborn Steels and
that Dawborn Steels is entering into these Terms in reliance on this representation.
4. On the Customer’s written acceptance of the Quote and/or Sales Contract and payment of any deposit
required under the Sales Contract, Dawborn Steel will order the Goods from its supplier where those Goods
are not already in stock.
5. As most orders of Goods are specific to meet an individual Customer’s needs, once Dawborn Steels has
placed an order for Goods with its supplier, the Sales Contract cannot be terminated by the Customer without
the prior written consent of Dawborn Steels.
6. Where Dawborn Steels agrees in writing to end a Sales Contract, the Customer indemnifies Dawborn
Steels against any Losses Dawborn Steels suffers or incurs as a result of the cancellation of the Sales
Contract including without limitation, any out of pocket expenses, consequential loss and loss of profit.
7. The Customer acknowledges and agrees:
a. these Terms and the terms in the Sale Contract set out the only contractual terms governing the supply of
Goods by Dawborn Steels to the Customer;
b. if the Customer has standard terms and conditions of trade, those terms do not apply to the supply of
Goods by Dawborn Steels to the Customer; and
c. these Terms apply to each Sales Contract entered into by the parties.

Customer’s Obligations
8. When placing an order for Goods, the Customer must either nominate a delivery address or, advise that
the Customer will arrange to collect the Goods from Dawborn Steels’ premises.
9. Where the Goods are to be delivered to the Customer, Dawborn Steels will confirm the Customer’s delivery
address and estimated date for delivery in the Sales Contract. Where the Customer is collecting the Goods
from Dawborn Steels, Dawborn Steels will nominate the estimated delivery date and confirm the Goods are to
be collected from its premises.
10. Any costs incurred by Dawborn Steels in reliance on incorrect or inadequate information contained in a
request for a Quote or Sales Contract may result in the imposition of additional charges being added to the
Pricing payable by the Customer under the Sales Contract.
11. The Customer acknowledges and agrees the estimated delivery date is an estimate only and it will not
bring a Claim for any Loss suffered or incurred by it or any third party as a result of the estimated delivery
date not being met.
12. Dawborn Steels will notify the Customer as soon as practicable of its actual delivery date once
known (Actual Delivery Date). If the Goods are being delivered to the Customer’s delivery address, the
Customer must ensure it has adequate staff available at the delivery premises to accept the delivery of Goods
and to unload the Goods on the Actual Delivery Date. If the Goods are being collected from Dawborn Steels’
premises, the Customer must collect the Goods on the Actual Delivery Date unless another date is agreed to
in writing.
13. The Customer will ensure any contractors, employees or agents it sends to collect Goods from Dawborn
Steels’ premises will comply with Dawborn Steels policies and all lawful directions received from Dawborn
Steels’ officers, employees, agents or contractors including those relating to workplace safety and
occupational health and safety.
14. The Customer must pay Dawborn Steels the Pricing in full for the Goods within 30 days of the end of the
month that the invoice is dated, unless different Payment Terms are set out in the applicable Sales Contract,
in which case, the Payment Terms in the applicable Sales Contract prevail but only for that Sales Contract.
15. The Customer acknowledges Dawborn Steels may change these Terms from time to time for legitimate
business reasons. Any changes will be published on Dawborn Steels’ website and will take effect 14 days
after the date published. The Customer agrees to check Dawborn Steels’ website regularly for changes to the
Terms and before it enters into any Sales Contract, to ensure it is aware of any changes to the Terms before
accepting the Sales Contract. If the Customer does not agree to the changed Terms it must not accept the
Sales Contract. If the Sales Contract is accepted, then the Customer acknowledges and agrees it is providing
its consent to the changed Terms.
Customer Insolvency Event
16. The Customer undertakes to notify Dawborn Steels of any step or proposed step taken by any creditor or
financier of the Customer of which the Customer becomes aware, which is reasonably likely to result in the
occurrence of an Insolvency Event as soon as reasonably practicable and in any event within 24 hours of the
Customer becoming aware of the step or proposed step being taken.
17. On the Customer suffering an Insolvency Event, the Customer is in default of these Terms.
Rolling Forecasts
18. For Customers requiring Dawborn Steels to hold significant quantities of Goods in Australia in advance of
placing orders, those Customers agree to provide Dawborn Steels with yearly forecasts of Goods required
and quarterly updates of its anticipated stock requirements for the coming quarter expected to be ordered
from Dawborn Steels during that period. The Customer also agrees to notify Dawborn Steels as soon as
practicable of any changes to its anticipated stock requirements. The Customers who must comply with
clauses 18 and 19 will be advised of this requirement by Dawborn Steels.
19. Due to the cost to Dawborn Steels to carry these Goods in advance of purchase, the estimates provided
under clause 18 are binding on the Customer and the Customer must purchase 100% of the Goods set out in
the quarterly forecast each quarter, unless Dawborn Steels has, in advance, agreed in writing, to alternative
purchasing arrangements for that quarter.
Risk, Returns and Title in Goods
20. Risk in the Goods passes to the Customer either: from the time Dawborn Steels delivery truck arrives at
the Customer’s delivery address or; at the time the Customer’s delivery truck arrives at Dawborn Steels’
premises to pick up the Goods.
21. The Customer must promptly notify Dawborn Steels in writing (but in any event no later than 5 Business
Days following the Actual Delivery Date) of any faults or defects in the Goods delivered. If the Customer fails
to advise Dawborn Steels in writing within this timeframe of any fault or defect in the Goods or failure of
Goods to accord with the Customer's Sales Contract, the Customer is deemed to have accepted the Goods
and to have accepted that the Goods are not faulty, defective and accord with the Customer's Sales Contract.
Nothing in this paragraph affects the Customer's rights for any alleged failure of a guarantee under the ACL
where those statutory rights apply to the Customer.
22. If the Customer determines any of the Goods are defective or damaged within 5 business days of being
delivered, the Customer must immediately notify Dawborn Steels in writing of the fault or defect and return
any damaged Goods to Dawborn Steels within 10 Business Days of delivery. The Customer must pay for the
cost of returning the damaged or defective Goods to Dawborn Steels’ premises. If on receipt of the damaged
or defective Goods Dawborn Steels agrees with the Customer’s assessment the Goods are damaged or
defective, it will raise a credit note against the Customer’s account.
23. Title in the Goods supplied to the Customer under these Terms and any Sales Contract does not pass to
the Customer until all monies (including any Pricing owing for those Goods and any other money owing in
respect of other transactions between Dawborn Steels and the Customer) which are due and payable to
Dawborn Steels by the Customer, have been fully paid.
24. Where Goods are supplied by Dawborn Steels to the Customer without payment in full of all monies owing
in respect of the Goods, the Customer:
a. is a bailee of the Goods until title in them passes to the Customer;

agreed Payment Terms (or such longer time as Dawborn Steels may, in its complete discretion, approve in
writing); and
f. the Customer grants an irrevocable licence to Dawborn Steels or its agents to enter the Customer's
premises in order to recover possession of Goods pursuant to this clause.

payable in respect of the Goods and the Customer makes a new object from the Goods, whether finished or
not, or the Customer mixes the Goods with other goods or the Goods become part of other goods (New
Goods), the Customer agrees with Dawborn Steels that the ownership of the New Goods immediately passes
to Dawborn Steels. The Customer will hold the New Goods on trust for Dawborn Steels until payment of all
sums owing to Dawborn Steels whether under these Terms or any Sales Contract have been made and
Dawborn Steels may require the Customer to store the New Goods in a manner that clearly shows the
ownership of Dawborn Steels.
26. For the avoidance of doubt, under clause 25, the ownership of the New Goods passes to Dawborn Steels
at the beginning of the operation or event by which the Goods are converted into, are mixed with or become
part of other goods.
27. Notwithstanding clause 26, the Customer may transfer, sell or dispose of Goods, including New Goods, to
a third party in the ordinary course of business provided that:
a. where the Customer is paid by a third party in respect of Goods including New Goods, the Customer holds
the whole of the proceeds of sale less any GST on trust for Dawborn Steels. Those monies must be held in a
separate account, until all amounts owed by the Customer to Dawborn Steels have been paid; or
b. where the Customer is not paid by a third party, the Customer agrees to assign all of its rights against the
third party to Dawborn Steels on Dawborn Steels giving the Customer written notice to that effect. For the
purpose of giving effect to the assignment of the Customer’s rights against the third party it irrevocably
appoints Dawborn Steels as its attorney and agrees to ratify any action taken by Dawborn Steels under the
power of attorney.
28. Where the PPSA is in force, the Customer acknowledges that these Terms create a security interest
under the PPSA in the Goods supplied by Dawborn Steels to the Customer, and for the avoidance of doubt,
the proceeds of sale of those Goods and any New Goods.
29. The Customer consents to Dawborn Steels effecting a registration of any security interest contemplated or
created by these Terms, including, without limitation, an interest under clauses 23 to 28, on the PPSR (in any

31. Dawborn Steels’ security interest in the Goods and New Goods is a continuing security and remains in full
force and effect until the date the Customer complies with all of its obligations under these Terms and any
Sales Contract.

Steels may enforce its security interest and the Customer must take all action reasonably required by
Dawborn Steels, or any attorney, receiver, administrator or liquidator, to assist them.

discretion apply that payment to satisfy obligations that are not secured, then obligations that are secured, but

losses being incurred. The aggregate liability of Dawborn Steels in damages in respect of any act or omission
of Dawborn Steels in connection with its obligations under these Terms or any Sales Contract is capped at

65. Where the Customer is in default and Dawborn Steels terminates any Sales Contract, on the termination
date, Dawborn Steels must be paid any monies owing for any Goods ordered but not yet delivered and any
other monies owing under this Agreement. The parties agree, the invoice of Dawborn Steels disclosing the
outstanding monies owing for Goods ordered and any other monies owing, for the purposes of this clause, is
sufficient evidence those Fees and monies are owed by the Customer to Dawborn Steels.
