4.      ADMA shall bear the expense of unusable NSP due to a recall or look-back , or the destruction of any NSP due to post-donation lookback issues in accordance with FDA regulations and guidance, in each case, if such NSP has become unusable or destroyed after delivery to ADMA.

 

5.      ADMA shall have the right to conduct periodic inspections of BPC’s centers and facilities dealing with the NSP at times mutually agreeable to the Parties, with no more than [***] auditors.

1.      ADMA shall inspect each shipment of NSP for conformity with ADMA’s specifications, as of the Effective Date of this Agreement which are set forth on Exhibit A (which may be amended from time to time in accordance with this Agreement), within [***] days of the arrival of such NSP at ADMA’s designated warehouse. ADMA shall promptly notify BPC in writing of its determination of any non-conformity of such NSP with the ADMA Specifications, in which case, the Parties shall mutually determine, within [***] days of such written notification, whether such NSP meets the ADMA Specifications.

The Party from whom indemnity is sought shall be entitled at its option to defend or control the defense and/or settlement of any such claim if and only if the amount of losses in respect of such claim would not reasonably be expected to exceed the amount then available for indemnification; provided, that the indemnifying Party shall not settle any such claim unless the indemnifying Party would be obligated to pay the full amount of the losses in connection with such claim and such settlement completely and unconditionally releases the indemnified Party from all losses in connection with such claim, does not entail any admission of liability on the part of the indemnified Party and would not otherwise adversely affect the indemnified Party.
