English term or phrase:premise
Regardless of the Supplies' destination, delivery is deemed effective by ABB or its subcontractors if the Supplies do not transit via ABB premises, even if the assembly and/or commissioning is performed by ABB at the Customer’s premises.
@Lesley: Are you telling us that "(正式)前提" is definitely suitable for the context "via ABB premises" or "at the Customer's premises"? Should that be the case, people who understand Chinese would definitely doubt your language competence in Chinese.
