The S 2022 General Conditions are an updated version of the S 2012 General Conditions (originally the S 92 General Conditions). They are primarily intended for use in international contracts for sale and delivery of engineering industry products in general. They can also be used for national contracts, but they are not suitable for use in consumer contracts.
S 2022 update S 2012 to reflect legal developments and experience with supply contracts in the technology industries. Among the main changes, one can mention an adapted definition of “Gross Negligence”, a specific clause on intellectual property, a simplification of payment terms and a clarification of the liability for infringement of intellectual property rights.
There is a special annex which should be used in contracts when German law applies. Under S 2022, the law of the supplier’s country will be the applicable law, unless otherwise agreed.
The Supplementary Conditions S 2012 S on supervision of installation are under revision and will be released as S 2022 S soon. You can check whether they could be useful for your purposes.
Suppliers who will also install the product at the purchaser’s place for putting the product into service, may want to use Orgalim S 14 conditions for supply and installation.
