M 17 : General Conditions for Maintenance of Mechanical, Electrical and Electronic Equipment
Published: October 2017
Electronic copy languages: English, French, German, Italian, Turkish
Intended for use in contracts for the maintenance of equipment previously supplied either by the maintenance contractor or by a third party, 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 Orgalim General Conditions for Repair (R 17) should be used.
The Orgalim M 17 are available in English, French, German and Italian.
There is a special annex which should be used in contracts when German law applies.
