Sample Letter One (On Commodity Inspection)
We have received your letter of April 15 inquiring information about the commodity inspection. As a usual practice, all exports are subject to inspection by an inspection organization in that country, which issues a survey report after inspection. In order to benefit both the buyer and the seller, the buyer is entitled to reinspection within the contracted time limit. That is, the buyer shall have the right to apply to the Administration for Quality Supervision and Inspection and Quarantine(国家质量监督检验检疫总局 ) to carry out the inspection at the port of destination. The re-inspection certificates shall be final and serve as the basis for making a claim if any discrepancy should be found not in agreement with the contract. We hope the above information will be useful to you.
Sample Letter Two (Replying to an Inquiry about Insurance)
Answering your inquiry of June 10 in regard to insurance, we would like to give you our reply as follows: First, we generally cover insurance WPA and War Risk in the absence of definite instructions from our clients. If you desire to cover All Risk, we can provide such coverage at a slightly higher premium. Second, insurance on the goods shall be covered by us for 110% of the invoice value, and any extra premium for additional coverage, if required, shall be borne by the buyer. We trust the above information will serve your purpose. The Insurance Policy will be sent at once as soon as we receive your letter of confirmation to the above. Await your further news.
In reply to your letter of March 7 inquiring about the insurance on your order, we wish to inform you that for goods sold on CIF basis, insurance is to cover All Risks & War Risk for 110% of the invoice value. If broader coverage is required, the extra premium involved will be for buyers’ account. The insurance shall terminate when the goods are delivered to the consignee’s warehouse at the destination named in the policy. The cover, however, is limited to 60 days upon discharge of the insured goods from the sea-going vessel at the final port of discharge before the insured goods reach the consignee’s warehouse. Our underwriter- the People’s Insurance Company of China has agents in practically all the big cities in the world to handle claims. Should any damage to the goods occur a claim may be filed with the insurance agent at your end, who will undertake to compensate you for the loss sustained.
Sample Letter Three
In presenting a claim to the Insurance Company or agent, the insured is usually required to submit the following documents:
  1) Original Policy or Certificate of Insurance, original or copy of Bill of Lading, Invoice, Packing list;
  2) Certificate of Loss or Damage and/or Shortlanded Memo, Survey Report;
  3) Statement of Claim. An insurance claim should be submitted to the Insurance Company or its agent as promptly as possible so as to provide the latter with ample time to pursue recovery from the relative party in fault. Claim against the ocean carriers will usually become time barred one year after discharge of the cargo from the sea-going vessel.
The People’s Insurance Company of China enjoys high prestige in setting claims promptly and equitably. The principle perils which the basic marine policy of the People’s Insurance Company of China insures against under its Ocean Marine Cargo Clauses are: Free From Particular Average (F.P.A), With Average (W.A) and All Risks. For further particulars, please contact the People’s Insurance Company of China or its agent at your end.
Situational Conversation
Commodity inspection and insurance are very important in foreign trade. The commodity inspection must be conducted by recognized surveyors before shipment or after arrival. And in order to protect the goods against possible losses in transit, the buyers or the sellers should apply to an insurance company for insurance. Mr.Yu is going to negotiate the matter of inspection and insurance with Mr. Kinch today.
Specifying the Inspection Right
K: Shall we go down to the issue of inspection now, Mr.Yu? Y: All right. Careful and proper inspection is an indispensable part to ensure the quality of the goods to be purchased. K: Let’s first specify the inspection right, OK? Y: OK, what are your inspection stipulations for your imports and exports, then?
K: According to the inspection clauses, inspection must be conducted before shipment by recognized surveyors, who then issue certificates concerning the quality, quantity, etc. These certificates may be taken as the basis for negotiating payment. Upon arrival of the imported goods, the Administration for Quality and Inspection and Quarantine at the port of destination should re-inspect the goods. Should the quality, specifications, quantity or weight be found not in conformity with the stipulation of the order, due to causes other than those for which the insurance company, shipping company, airlines or post office are liable,
the buyer shall have the right to lodge a claim against the seller on the strength of a survey report or inspection certificate issued by the Administration for Quality Supervision and Inspection and Quarantine at the port of destination. Such a survey report shall be final and shall serve as the basis for filing a claim. Y: What you mean is that the exported goods should be inspected before shipment, and the imported goods should be re-inspected after their arrival, right? K: You are right. It is quite common in international trade today. Y: Very reasonable. The interests of both the buyer and the seller are taken into account.
Talking about Re-inspection
K: As for inspection, our practice has proved to be quite reasonable and it has been accepted by our foreign customers. Y: Yes, I think so, too. When exactly should the reinspection be made? K: For this item, it’s international practice that the reinspection should be made within 10 days upon the arrival and if any discrepancy is found, claim must be raised within 30 days. However, as I said before, claims that fall within the responsibility of shipping company and underwriter shall not be entertained. Y: Thank you, Mr. Kinch. I’ve got another question. As regards re-inspection, can we appoint any authentic surveyor(公证签定人 ) without your approval?
K: In order to carry out the contract smoothly and avoid unnecessary disputes, it’s best for us to name the inspection organization that shall be approved by both sides and be stipulated in the contract. Y: I see what you mean. But what shall we do if the results from the two inspections do not coincide with each other? K: We’ll have a seminar of specialists and surveyors from both sides to clarify which is correct. Y: If we do like this, I’m sure we can resolve the differences through friendly consultations, and no case under dispute shall then be submitted for arbitration. K: I hope so.
Talking about the Coverage
Y: What kind of insurance coverage have you got in mind for this batch of computers, Mr. Kinch? K: Considering our deal is based on CIF terms, we’d like to have it covered under WPA. Y: Is the damage of the goods included in WPA? K: No, not yet, it belongs to the Risk of Breakage. Y: Could you cover the Risk of breakage for us, then? K: Sure. But as you know, the Risk of Breakage is an additional insurance coverage. If it is required, the extra premium incurred will be for the buyer’s account. Y: I see. What about All Risks, then? Do we still have to pay the extra premium?
K: You don’t really have to. As a matter of fact, All Risks covers the insurance against all risks of loss or damage to the insured goods arising from sea perils, and some external forces. Y: Do you mean that risks such as breakage, leakage, TPND, hook and contamination damage are all included? K: Yes, absolutely. Y: By the way, Mr.Kinch, how shall we calculate the premium? K: That we’ll do according to conventions. It’s only a percentage of the total value of your goods. It’s very low. Y: Thank you, Mr.Kinch. So, with regard to insurance, let’s put the following clause down in the contract: “Insurance is to be effected by the seller for 110% of invoice value against All Risks as per Ocean Marine Cargo Clauses of the People’s Insurance Company of China.” OK? K: OK.
Talking about the Premium
Y: I’m sorry I have to mention this again. After a second thought I think we’d better have the insurance of the goods covered at 130% of the invoice value. Do you think that can be done? K: I think so, but please note that our insurance coverage is for 110% of the invoice value only. Therefore, the premium for the difference between 130% and 110% should be for your account. Y: I see. Then, how about your covering All Risks and War Risk for 130% of the invoice value with the PICC? K: I’ll do that , You can rest assured that we will have the goods insured as soon as then are shipped.
About Arbitration
Y: Oh, Mr. Kinch, the arbitration clause suddenly occurred to me just now. This transaction is rather different from usual. Besides the large quantity, the computers we have ordered are very valuable. In case disputes arise, we should include an arbitration clause in the contract. K: Arbitration clause? Mr.Yu, I think it doesn’t matter whether there is any arbitration or not. If any disputes arise, I’m sure that they can be settled through an amicable negotiation. Y: Yes, that sounds fine. But the provision of arbitration is really of primary importance and a matter of great concern to both of us. It will be generally the last resort if there is no alternative. K: OK, we have no objection then. But I wonder where to hold the arbitration? Y: Is it agreeable to you to adopt our usual practice that the arbitration is conducted in China?
K: Mr. Yu, you’d better not regulate the location for arbitration and the arbitral organization now. we may discuss to agree upon a temporary arbitral body when needed. As for the place of arbitration, maybe in a third country in order to seek a fair and equitable solution to the problems. Y: Oh, yes, Mr.Kinch, I agree with you. But the clause should be like this: “Any disputes arising from the execution of this contract shall be settled in a friendly way. If no settlement can be reached through consultation and conciliation, the disputes shall be submitted for arbitration by a mutually nominated arbitrator. The arbitrator’s decision on the disputes is final and binding.” K: That’s fine. Only one thing is not mentioned. How is the cost of the arbitration to be divided? Y: Generally speaking, all the fees for arbitration shall be borne by the losing party. K: It’s acceptable, Mr.Yu.
Thank you!
