Item 3

Section 4 Quality requirements:
Item 1
In the absence of any agreement to the contrary, the painting will be finished in accordance with auto painting industry (FAI) standards and norms for finished paintwork.
Item 2
As, in the case of partial painting assignments, it is not possible to assure 100 per cent colour match with the adjacent areas, the purchaser is obliged to accept minor colour deviations. Acceptable colour deviations are described in DIN 6175, section 1: ‘Colour tolerances in the automotive industry’.
Item 3
If performance of the assignment involves materials that the customer supplies or requires to be used, the vendor cannot guarantee the quality of the work performed.
Item 4
A 12-month warranty is provided.
Section 5 Responsibility for defects:
Item 1
If the painting assignment is to be performed on units that have been pre-treated by other parties or on an existing treatment, the vendor’s responsibility will only extend to damage provably attributable to the vendor’s own work, unless preceding treatment has been obviously defective.
The vendor is obliged to inform the purchaser of defective pre-treatment. If the purchaser nevertheless requests the work done, the vendor accepts no liability for the quality.
Item 2
The purchaser is obliged to check all units immediately on collection/delivery, and to inform the vendor without delay about any complaints concerning visible defects.
Item 3
The vendor’s liability extends exclusively to defects that the purchaser calls to his attention within one year of the day on which the units were delivered to the purchaser.
Throughout the liability period, the vendor is obliged to rectify any defects identified subsequent to delivery.
Item 4
The vendor’s liability does not extend to indirect losses, such as loss of business, loss of profit, fines or other such indirect losses and/or any consequential expenses.
Item 5
If, in connection with damage covered by insurance, the necessary dismantling of fender profiles, handles, windows, etc. is not performed by the purchaser, the vendor accepts no liability for peeling, rust penetration and rust leaching at joins.
Item 6
The vendor accepts no liability for defects resulting from:
• Mechanical impact subsequent incorrect treatment of the paintwork, or other influences that cannot be attributed to the paint work itself, such as stone chips.
• The utilisation of the units before the paintwork has had time to harden sufficiently (including the application of emblems or similar).
• Chemical and thermal influences on the units subsequent to delivery, of which the vendor has no knowledge and which do not accord with the specifications applicable to the paint in question.
Item 7
No paint factory can deliver paint that water cannot penetrate. If the painting work is performed correctly, and if the paint is applied in the thickness stated by the relevant paint factory, the vendor cannot be held liable for any moisture bubbles that may form. In this context ‘moisture bubbles’ is taken to mean blisters in the paintwork that may occur as a result of the long-term influence of moisture.
Item 8
Any disputes are to be settled by the FAI’s board of appeal.
