notice as aforesaid, it shall comply with the Company’s

instructions concerning the return or retention for inspection of

such Goods which shall beat the Buyer’s risk until back in the

possession of the Company. In no event shall the Buyer be

entitled to reject the Goods on the basis of any defect or failure
