Any acceptance or acknowledgment of the Order by the Supplier (including, without limitation, by commencing with any of the work or activities called for in the Order), even if containing or referencing terms inconsistent with or in addition to the terms of the Order shall be deemed as a full acceptance by the Supplier of the Order, and the inconsistent or additional terms shall be deemed ineffective, unless they were specifically and expressly accepted by the Purchaser in writing.

4.3   The Purchaser may instruct variations of and extras to the Contract at any time.  Any such instructions must be confirmed by a formal written amendment issued by the Purchaser. If any changes cause an increase or decrease in the cost of, or the time required for the performance of, any work under this Order, an equitable adjustment shall be agreed between the parties in writing. Should the parties fail to reach an agreement on cost or time required, the Supplier shall continue work under the Contract including any change advised by the Purchaser, whilst the parties negotiate an agreeable settlement.
