Sampling

The company HAKUS arranges samples to be taken in order to analyse acidity, content of water and impurities (or phosphorus or sulphur content if required) in a renowned laboratory. Samples are taken from each separate section individually. Samples are taken from the bottom, middle and top parts. One combined sample is produced out of these individual samples. Before dispatch to customers, the values must correspond with the declared quality. When the analysis results are obtained, both the contracting parties are entitled to require a comprehensive analysis. The other contracting party shall be notified about that within 7 working days. The costs shall be borne by the requesting party. The average of the two results shall be the basis for payment. Should the results of the first and second analysis vary significantly, each contracting party shall be entitled to have a third analysis carried out in an agreed laboratory. The fee for such analysis shall be borne by both of the contracting parties equally. After the third analysis is carried out, the average of two closest results shall serve as the basis for payment. Samples are taken from each separate section individually. Samples are taken from the bottom, middle and top parts. One combined sample is produced out of these individual samples. Before dispatch to customers, the values must correspond with the declared quality.

 

Transport

Transport may be organized in freight cars in an agreed railway station (code, name), or in tanker vehicles. Date of delivery (loading, handover to a carrier) needs to be agreed in good time and the contract number needs to be provided. An authorized representative of Hakus a.s., OOO MBB Group or an SGS commissioner needs to be present during loading. Except for events of Force Majeure, the costs of delay, incurred as a result of non-compliance with the agreed date of delivery/unloading or receipt, shall be borne by the party that failed to comply with such date. The place and date of delivery is understood to be a place specified by the customer in a specific order. Transport will be implemented using specialized tanker vehicles or freight cars intended for transport of vegetable oil (transport usually takes 4 to 7 days).
