The disputes between the foreign trade parties in the trade process are often caused by the fact that the quality clauses in the foreign trade contract are not clear.

One of the problems reflected in the actual work of foreign trade is that the disputes between the foreign trade parties in the trade process are mainly due to the fact that the quality clauses in the foreign trade contracts are not clear.

There is a dispute between Company A and Company B.

For example, Company A (a company in Shanghai, China) and Company B (a company in Tokyo, Japan) trade in the sale of clothing. Since Company A is shipped to the designated port of destination of Company B, Company B also receives the goods. According to the relevant foreign trade contract, Company B shall pay by T/T. However, Company B did not pay the relevant amount in time. Company A sent a fax to Company B several times and requested Company B. Payment, Company B remained silent, neither paid nor stated any reason. Under this premise, Company A again sent a fax to Company B, and made it clear that if it does not pay within 10 days, Company A will be based on the foreign trade contract. In respect of the terms, the company shall be investigated for liability. At this time, Company B responded. The reason for not paying was that the quality of the goods provided by Company A did not meet the requirements. Now the company's next home provides serious quality problems in the quality of the goods, and Company B is required to pay compensation. Responsibility and more. At the same time, Company B stated that if Company B’s next family legally requires Company B to assume liability for compensation, then the compensation for this part will be borne by Company A and so on.
