International Contract Manufacturing Agreement
In a typical arrangement, company X manufacturer Y provides the specifications and perhaps also the materials needed for the manufacturing process. An international manufacturing agreement should include at least the following 5 conditions: The following contractual clauses of the ITC model relating to the international distribution of goods may be copied into the international contractual manufacturing agreement of the ITC model: 11. For QC: you will do QC. The defective product is not shipped; The defective product is destroyed. The preferred option is for the factory to replace all defects to avoid a short order. If this is not possible AND if the defect rate is less than 3%, a brief order is allowed, but the amount to be paid is reduced. If the defect rate is greater than 3%, the factory is responsible for all direct losses of the buyer and the buyer has the right to withdraw from the order or contract. Note that we base this error rate on what we have agreed around the world with products similar to yours. The international transaction work allows me to have an overview of the business page of many different sectors. I`m posting the email below (without any credentials) because it explains so clearly why a model manufacturing contract can`t work and makes no sense even in an emergency situation.
While most of my cases focus on international litigation or arbitration, I get a great thrill from structuring international business contracts. International manufacturing contracts are used when a company entrusts the manufacture of its products to another company in another country. To send you, I have integrated a few pages below of an international standard manufacturing agreement. Last week, a relatively large company sent me an email asking what our law firm calculates for the “Thai and Vietnamese model production agreements”. A few hours later, I received the same request from another company for Mexico. In response to these emails, I explained why we don`t take “model” manufacturing agreements anywhere in the world and why they wouldn`t want such an agreement.

The following international contractual clauses of the ITC model can be copied into the international manufacturing contract of the ITC model: loan products. Many manufacturing agreements require the use of special equipment or tools during the manufacturing process. The ITC model contract provides, in the event that such devices or tools are made available to the manufacturer by the customer. Obviously, in such cases, the client requires a higher level of skill and care with respect to the handling of their equipment or tools. This possibility of `loan` is provided for in Article 1(5). 10. Your POs must indicate an “expected” delivery date. If the delivery is made more than two weeks after the scheduled delivery date, a fee of 1% per day is applied for a maximum period of 30 days. This amount is treated as a credit and the purchase price to be paid from your first payment on your next order will be reduced by the amount of the credit. After 30 days (now six weeks from the scheduled date of delivery), the factory is deemed contrary to the contract and you have the right to terminate.
If you do not resign, the penalty of 1% per day continues to apply. Basic idea: the section below introduces the ICT Model Contract, which provides a framework for an international agreement on contract manufacturing. This is only a general framework and needs to be adapted to specific circumstances. . . .
