Terms and conditions of contract
The below Terms and Conditions of Contract are those conditions which cover all Purchase Orders for any goods, works or services purchased by Reigate & Banstead Borough Council.
These Terms and Conditions may only be varied by amendments agreed in writing by Reigate & Banstead Borough Council or stated on the Purchase Order; these are the only amendments Reigate & Banstead Borough Council will accept.

If the Supplier does not wish to accept these terms and conditions, then the Supplier should not accept the Purchase Order, and should inform the contact on the Purchase Order immediately.
