        any such warranty or guarantee or otherwise underwriting the performance of any product, advice or service.
        The Company is not authorised to make any representations on behalf of or otherwise bind EST in any way

        Company may derive from obtaining any Certification or losses that may be incurred from failing to obtain or

        contract, negligence or otherwise) for any:
        5.3.1       loss of profits;
        5.3.2       loss of anticipated revenues or savings;

        claims arising under or in connection with the Agreement (whether by reason of any breach of contract,
        negligence or otherwise) will not in any event exceed an amount equal to the total Fees received by EST from
        time to time.
5.5     EST will not be liable for any delay in performing or failure to perform its obligations under the Agreement to
        the extent that such delay or failure is attributable to any delay or failure on the party of the Company to
        perform its own obligations or to any other circumstances beyond EST's reasonable control.
5.6     Nothing in the Agreement will operate to limit or exclude the liability of EST for death or personal injury

6.      Withdrawal of Certification
6.1     EST will be entitled to withdraw any Certification on a permanent basis with immediate effect at any time on
        giving notice to the Company if any one or more of the following events occurs or has occurred prior to the
        Agreement becoming effective and is continuing:-
        6.1.1       where the Company has been given an opportunity to rectify one or more failures to comply with
                    the Certification Requirements, it fails to do so in accordance with any reasonable timescale for
                    rectification set by EST and/or otherwise to EST's reasonable satisfaction;
        6.1.2       the Company commits a material breach of any provision of this Agreement;
        6.1.3       the Company becomes insolvent, makes any voluntary arrangement with its creditors, enters
                    administration or goes into liquidation (otherwise than for the purposes of solvent amalgamation
                    or reconstruction);
        6.1.4       a security holder takes possession, or a receiver or administrative receiver is appointed, over all
                    or any part of the property or assets of the Company;
        6.1.5       the Company ceases or threatens to cease carrying on its business;
        6.1.6       EST reasonably considers that a withdrawal of the Certification is justified in order to protect the
                    reputation of EST and/or the Certification.
6.2     If EST has reasonable grounds for believing, whether as a result of information received from a third party or
        6.2.1       that an event may have occurred (including a breach of the Agreement) which would entitle EST
                    to withdraw the Certification on a permanent basis under clause 6.1 above; and/or
        6.2.2       that any of the events set out in clause 6.1 above may be about to occur;
        then EST will be entitled on giving notice to the Company to withdraw any Certification for such temporary
        period as EST may reasonably specify for the purposes of carrying out an investigation into the relevant
6.3     Following the expiry or withdrawal of any Certification (whether temporarily or on a permanent basis), the
        Company will take all necessary steps to communicate that fact to potential customers or end-users of the
        relevant product and will not do or permit to be done anything which might give the impression to any such
        end-user or any other third party that the relevant product continues to be Certified.
6.4     Any withdrawal of a Certification will be without prejudice to any other rights or remedies to which EST may
        be entitled under the Agreement or at law. Any expiry or permanent withdrawal of a Certification will operate
        as a termination of the Agreement as to that Certification, but will not affect any accrued rights or liabilities of
        either party, nor the coming into or continuance in force of any provision which is expressly or by implication
        intended to come into or continue in force in such circumstances.
6.5     For the avoidance of doubt, the Company will not be entitled to any refund of Fees in circumstances where a
        Certification is withdrawn by EST under this clause 6, regardless of the point during any Certification Period at
        which such withdrawal occurs.
7.      General
7.1     The Company acknowledges and agrees that EST shall be entitled to do the following:-
        7.1.1       to maintain a database of publicly accessible information in relation to particular certification
                    schemes and to include in such databases such information in relation to the Company and/or
                    any Certified product as EST reasonably considers appropriate given the purpose of the relevant
                    certification scheme;
        7.1.2       to make such announcements or publish such press releases or other statements as EST
                    reasonably considers appropriate following the withdrawal of any Certification, including the name
                    of the Company and a description.
7.2     Any Certification applies to the particular legal entity that has applied for and been awarded that Certification
        and accordingly the Company is not entitled to assign, sub-licence or otherwise transfer or dispose of any
        Certification or any rights or obligations relating to it or otherwise arising under the Agreement without the
        express, prior written consent of EST.
7.3     The Agreement will constitute the entire agreement and understanding, and will supersede any previous
        agreement(s), between the parties in connection with the subject matter of the Agreement. The Company
        acknowledges and agrees that it has not been induced to enter into the Agreement in reliance upon, and in

        connection with the Agreement does not have any remedy in respect of, any representation or other
        statement or promise of any nature whatsoever other than as expressly set out in the Agreement.
7.4     No variation to the Agreement will be effective unless made in writing and signed by an authorised
        representative of EST.
7.5     Unless expressly stated in this Agreement, nothing in the Agreement is to confer any rights on any person
        under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.
7.6     The Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England and Wales and any
        dispute arising under or in connection with this Agreement will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the
        courts of England and Wales, to which each of the parties irrevocably submits.
