1. Acceptance and Scope of these terms

1.1 These general terms and conditions of sale (“GTC”) shall apply to all sales of products and services provided by ITS Science & Medical Pte Ltd (“ITS”) to a customer (“Purchaser”). ITS Science & Medical Pte Ltd is a business division under ITS GROUP. 

1.2 These GTC shall supersede any conflicting terms contained on Purchaser’s purchase order or any document or instrument submitted by Purchaser unless expressly agreed to in writing by ITS.


2. Binding Contract, Changes, Cancellations


2.1 A binding contract for the sale of products or services requires either (i) an offer from ITS explicitly marked as binding, which is accepted by Purchaser in writing, or (ii) an order (oral or otherwise) from Purchaser, which is confirmed by ITS in writing or by performance in furtherance of a submitted purchase order.

2.2 Purchaser may not cancel or change a binding contract without ITS’s prior express written consent. Products subject to governmental regulations (e.g. European Medicine Agency, FDA) and/or processing requirements (e.g. cGMP) may not be eligible for cancellation. Approval of cancellations or changes may be conditional on the payment by Purchaser of costs incurred by ITS, including, without limitation, storage or shipment costs, costs of producing non-standard materials, costs of purchasing non-returnable materials, cancellation costs imposed on ITS by its suppliers, and any other costs resulting from cancellation. A verified bill of costs issued by an officer or other authorized representative of ITS shall be conclusive as to the amount of such costs.

2.3 ITS reserves the right to suspend or cancel any order, in whole or in part, upon Purchaser‘s breach of these GTC or bankruptcy, insolvency, dissolution, receivership proceedings, or upon the occurrence of any event leading ITS to reasonably question Purchaser‘s willingness or ability to purchase. 

2.4 Cancellation fees will be imposed to Purchaser in the following arrangement: 

  • 30% of the order value will be billed in cases of order cancellation.
  • Upon receipt of order, 80% of the order value will be billed in cases of order cancellation if the goods are already in stock or in transit.


3. Deliveries, Returned Products

3.1 Deliveries are available in Singapore only. ITS reserves the right to charge a delivery charge of SGD 30.00 (subject to tax) for a value order below SGD 200.00 (exclude tax). 

3.2 The lead time of the product is subject to stock availability. ITS will send an email to notify Purchaser on the lead time upon receipt of Purchase Order or Order Confirmation from Purchaser. 

3.3 Except otherwise explicitly agreed, deliveries of products shall be dispatched from ITS's warehouse or third party warehouse engaged by ITS. ITS is free to choose the carrier and the forwarding company and the means of transport. ITS reserves the right to choose the method of packaging. 

3.4 Delivery dates provided by ITS in offers and order confirmations are non-binding and the time of delivery shall not be of the essence. If the dispatch of the product ordered is delayed owing to circumstances for which Purchaser is responsible (including a lack of acceptance),or when the customer site is not ready to receive the goods. In case of such delays, any costs incurred by ITS due to the delay in delivery (in particular warehouse costs and charges) must be borne exclusively by Purchaser.

3.5 Partial deliveries (instalments) are permissible and may be invoiced by ITS immediately. Delay in delivery of any instalment shall not relieve Purchaser of its obligation to accept remaining deliveries.

3.6 Products sold are not returnable or exchangeable. Products not authorized for return include:

  • Products not in completely resaleable condition (including Products with damaged, missing or defaced labeling or packaging)
  • Chemicals, reagents, diagnostics, sterile or any controlled products (unless products do not meet specification)
  • Laboratory apparatus or instruments that have been used or are without the original packaging, labeling and operating manuals
  • Products which are not inventoried by ITS and are not able to be returned to the manufacturer.

4. Prices, Taxes, Payment, Late Payments

4.1 All prices published by ITS or quoted by ITS may be changed at any time without notice. Any quotation of prices provided by ITS is firm only if Purchaser places a corresponding order within the time specified in the quote or, if no time period is specified, within 30 days from the date of issuance of the quote. Purchaser must request shipment of the entire quantity ordered within the agreed contract period following the order date, unless otherwise stated in the quote. 

4.2 Unless otherwise specified in ITS’s quotation, all prices are quoted in SGD.

4.3 All prices are exclusive of any tax, duty, custom or other fee of any nature imposed by any governmental or quasi-governmental authority. All such taxes or fees shall be paid by Purchaser. In the event ITS is required to prepay any such tax, Purchaser shall fully reimburse ITS. Purchaser is also responsible for standard delivery and handling charges, if any. 

4.4 Payment with Credit Terms
Purchaser must pay invoices within 30 days from the invoice date or the agreed upon credit terms in the currency specified in ITS invoice.  

4.5 Each order is a separate transaction, and Purchaser may not set-off payments from one order against another. If the Purchaser is late in making payment, ITS may suspend delivery or cancel the Contract, reject future orders, and charge a late-payment charge to Purchaser, from the due date until paid, at the rate of one percent (1.5%) per month (or, if less, the maximum amount permitted by law). The Purchaser agrees to pay this late charge when ITS demands. If ITS appoints a collection agency or an attorney to recover any unpaid amounts, ITS can charge all reasonable costs of collection, including all associated reasonable attorneys’ fees to Purchaser.
