Change of Ownership
BioMedica requires written notification of any change in the ownership of an account-holder’s business. Arrangement for all monies owing to BioMedica must be made at or prior to time of settlement. Unless such notification is made the customer will be jointly liable with the transferee for any amounts incurred on the customer’s account after the transfer.

Orders over $200 (ex.GST) are eligible for free shipping to anywhere in Australia.
Orders can be placed through the patient ordering service. Payment must be made prior to the dispatch of goods. Payment methods accepted are Direct Deposit, Cash (in person), MasterCard or Visa.
The patient may only order what they have been prescribed by the practitioner for their own personal use and must not order on behalf of anyone else.
Domestic flat rate shipping within Australia is $7.50 ex GST per order (subject to change).
All orders are dispatched by courier and delivered during normal business hours. While every effort is made to ensure swift delivery BioMedica offers no guarantees of delivery times and strongly recommends that orders be placed in advance to avoid disappointment.
If the complete number of cartons has been signed for as delivered by the courier, BioMedica will not be responsible for claims for missing cartons. In all instances, please check the courier’s consignment note carefully and sign only if all cartons are delivered as described and undamaged.
Alternative delivery arrangements can be organised with customer service staff at the time of ordering. In the case of unsuccessful delivery due to the addressee being unavailable to accept the parcel at the time of delivery, redelivery/redirection fees may be charged to the customer.
Authority to leave without a signature is given at the customer’s own risk; BioMedica is not liable for any loss, damage or theft resulting from goods being left at or near premises at the customer’s request. In all cases the customer agrees to pay for goods that the courier states in writing have been delivered to the address nominated by the customer.
Stock which requires refrigerated storage will not be despatched after midday Friday to avoid the risk of being held up in transit over the weekend. It is the responsibility of the customer to check the invoice for refrigerated items upon receipt of goods and to store them appropriately.
Claims for credits due to errors in order processing, damaged items, short dated stock, etc. must be made within 5 working days of delivery. The customer is liable to pay BioMedica in full for all products delivered unless BioMedica have been contacted within 5 working days regarding claims/return requests.
Where stock is ordered in error by the customer, a return authorisation must be approved by BioMedica within 5 working days of delivery, prior to the return of goods. Freight for the return of this stock is the responsibility of the customer, as is freight for the delivery of any replacement stock.
Arrangements for the return of stock must be made with our Customer Service/Sales Team at the time of claim notification, prior to the physical return of goods. Goods returned without prior approval by BioMedica may not be credited for and may be disposed of on receipt.
Returns will not be accepted with price tags or markings, if stock is soiled/damaged, if the stock is damaged during return transit due to poor packaging, if stock does not sell prior to best before/expiry date or for stock that is on special sale eg. Clearance Specials.
An adjustment note will be issued once stock has been returned and the claim is assessed and approved by our Accounts department.
Prices valid at time of printing but are subject to change without notice due to circumstances beyond the control of BioMedica such as fluctuations in raw material costs. Refer to invoice for current price.
