About this document

Manufacturers often cannot provide all the processes you need for every part. You may, for example, have used several manufacturers for different components because of cost, location or specialism.

This contract is for a product owner to have a final product made up from component pieces he or she provides.

Those pieces might need additional work before they can be used, such as adding supplementary ones, cutting, stitching, welding, coating, polishing or having software installed on them (if electronic components).

The product then might need to be tested, labelled and packed before it is returned to the owner in a completed state.

In so far as this template agreement is concerned, the product could be anything, from clothing or furnishings, to machinery, to electronic equipment. Within it, you provide the specification and standards to be achieved.

This sort of deal can be complicated. This contract covers the structure in simple terms in plain English that you can edit yourself. It is suitable whether the work is carried out abroad or in the UK.


This is a comprehensive document that covers many matters. The most important are likely to be:

  • Warranties by both parties
  • Scope of work
  • Design reviews, testing and quality assurance
  • Setup costs
  • Payment
  • Price for quantity
  • Packaging and delivery
  • Transportation
  • Returns
  • Risk and retention of title
  • Use of sub-contractors
  • Confidential Information, including your intellectual property
  • Option to terminate on change of control
  • Rules for publicity and announcements
