This makes REMS the first system-independent machine- and tool manufacturer to have concluded a hold-harmless and indemnification agreement for pressing tools. The conclusion of the agreement was effected on the basis of a successful cooperation established on partnership between REMS, the crafts, trades and industry and their organizations.

Eligible for services and performances from this agreement are all independent professional craftsmen, and companies of such, who are enrolled in the register of artisans and craftsmen (referred to in the following as „SHK-Establishments“), in as far as they have been members of the crafts guild of the sanitary- heating- and climatization enterprises competent for their business location at the time the damage event has arisen, and this crafts guild is associated with a regional guild asso ciation, which is a member of the ZVSHK.

Eligible to the services and performances from the agreement with the BTGA are the building technology companies (hereinafter referred to as „TGA companies“) insofar as they were a member of the Land Industry Association Technical Building Equipment responsible at the seat of their company at the time of the damage case and therefore an indirect member of the BTGA or direct member of the BTGA.


Eligible for services and performances from this agreement with the VDKF are all coolant systems companies or professional organisations (referred to as Coolant and Air-Conditioning Profession Industries) who, at the time the damage is caused, are members of the VDKF.

Eligible for services and performances from this agreement are all building systems companies (following TGA companies) who, at the time the damaged is caused, are members of suissetec.

In as far as the radial pressing tools mentioned show a defect with regard to construction, manufacture or material, or if the operator’s manuals are faulty, thereby causing damage for the customer of the SHK-establishment, the Coolant and Air-Conditioning Profession Industries, or the TGA-companies, for which the SHK-establishment or the TGA-company is liable, then REMS shall be additionally liable - aside of the statutory prescriptions – for the consequences resulting from leakage, in accordance with the stipulations and provisions of this hold-harmless agreement.

The assumption of liability agreements apply regardless of which pressfitting system is pressed with the suitable REMS pressing tools. The current status regarding suitability of the REMS pressing tools for pressfitting systems can be viewed on the Internet: www.rems.de --> Downloads --> Product catalogues, brochures --> REMS Catalogue.
