Article 21: FORCE MAJEURE
A Party (Party Affected) shall not be held responsible for the non fulfilment of its contractual obligations due to an event of Force Majeure, i.e. an unforeseeable, irresistible event beyond the control of the Party. In this case, except in the case of a strike, subject to Article 21.2 here below, the contractual obligations of the Party Affected shall be suspended as of the date of receipt of the notification by the other Party.
The notification and all supporting documents demonstrating the reality of such an event shall indicate in particular the foreseeable date of return to satisfactory performance of the Contract and/or Procurement Orders concerned, as well as the measures taken to remedy the consequences of the event of Force Majeure. The Party Affected shall keep the other Party regularly informed of the evolution of the situation.
As soon as the hindrance due to the case of Force Majeure ceases to exist, and subject to the provisions of Article 19.1 (Termination for Force Majeure), the Party Affected shall inform the other Party forthwith and the suspended contractual obligations shall resume for the remaining duration of this Contract and/or Procurement Orders.
Any case of Force Majeure not notified in writing within fifteen (15) business days following its occurrence shall not vest in the Party claiming the case of Force Majeure the right to enforce this Article 21.
In the event of a strike at either Partys manufacturing facilities, the Party affected by the strike shall:
(i) advise the other Party within five (5) business days;
(ii) make its best endeavour to comply with delivery schedules in force when the strike began;
(iii) in the event that the original delivery schedule will be affected by the strike, provide a recovery plan to be mutually agreed by both Parties within fifteen (15) business days from the notification of the strike.
