This set of conditions is aimed for use by companies employing a third party to carry out maintenance of their equipment during a certain period.

These conditions cover both preventive maintenance, i.e. measures taken to ensure continuous functioning of equipment, and corrective maintenance, i.e. measures taken to remedy a defect which has occurred.

The conditions contain an introduction which explains their use and gives guidelines.

These conditions should not be used when the contractor, as a part of a repair contract, undertakes to repair defects which have occurred in equipment on an incidental basis, i.e. outside the scope of a contract to repair defects which may occur during the contract period.

In such cases the ORGALIME General Conditions for Repair (R 17) should be used.

The ORGALIME M 17 are available in English and German, a French version will soon be available.

There is a special annex which should be used in contracts when German law applies.
