5.6 Where delivery is to be made by instalments, delay in delivering one instalment shall not entitle the Buyer to refuse to accept the remaining instalments. Each instalment shall constitute a separate contract and be invoiced and paid for separately. Any delay in delivery or defect in an instalment shall not entitle the Buyer to cancel any other instalment.
