General Conditions

As the international sale of plants and their installation represent the core business of many companies in the mechanical and electrical engineering industries in Europe, Orgalime has recognised that these companies would benefit from a set of general conditions for the supply and installation of plants which could be used all over the world.

The first version of the Orgalime Supply and Installation Conditions has already been published in 1994 (SE 94-conditions) and these conditions have ever since been among Orgalime’s most widely-used legal publications. 
The Orgalime Supply and Installation Conditions are to a great extent based on the Orgalime Supply Conditions, which were most recently revised in 2012 when the S 2012-conditions for supply were adopted and published. Therefore, the major changes in the Orgalime Supply Conditions are also reflected in the Orgalime Supply and Installation Conditions. 

The General Conditions SI 14 (an update of Orgalime's SE 01 conditions) are intended for deliveries where the obligations of the supplier (contractor) include installation on site of the equipment that he delivers, normally to the purchaser's premises. 
SI 14 deviates from S 2012 only where necessary to cover the contractual aspects of installation and taking-over. This makes the application and the interpretation of the conditions easier. SI 14 are a modern alternative to the UN ECE 188A issued in 1957. What has been said in the comparison between S2012 and ECE 188 also applies to SI 14 as compared with ECE 188A. Apart from that there is also a marked difference in that SI 14 more clearly stipulates the conditions for and the consequences of taking-over the Products. 

Orgalime SI 14 are available in Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Spanish, Swedish and Russian (more languages will soon be available).

There is a special annex which should be used in contracts when German law applies.
